|The Statues by Roberto Piaia
Art Appointment in Versilia
Roberto Piaia, the world’s first creator of the form of Spiral Statues, enter the scene in the elegant and highly sought after “Il Forte Arte” Gallery. In the heart of Forte dei Marmi, Italy.
The dealers Patrizia Grigolini, co-owner with her daughter Veronica Cherubini of Il Forte Arte Gallery, expand the vision of particular works like those of Piaia presenting them in prestigious contexts.
Versilia’s Yachting Rendez-vous 2018:
Roberto Piaia’s statue Over in bronze, steel and silver work in the Galleria il Forte, was selected by the organizers and exhibited from May 10th to 13th at the occasion of Versilia’s Yachting Rendez-vous 2018, a glamour Nautica event in Viareggio, Italy.
Meetings with the Artist:
The attractive location Gallery will become the scene of cultural events and interesting events dedicated to meetings with the Artist during the summer.
Therefore, Versilia offers its guests unmissable opportunities, not only sunbathing. The summer is full of cultural events that enrich the holidays of the many tourists and visitors from all over the world.
The Spiral Statues:
The statues are created by a spiral that wraps around the figure of the body. Although formed in part by emptys, it does not betray it’s original forms, but rather using the “I see/don’t see” effect, the eye is captured by a visual effect that fills the representation of the object.
This is a very difficult job, attempted by many but never actually realized, characterized by a precise study of solids and voids, realized in a perfect balance of matter that does not need any support.
The Resin Statues:
One of the works is a model in resin taken from a statue carved on the statuary marble of Carrara: Genesis. The meaning of this title recalls the paths and the ways through which the first concepts came to form in the Artist’s mind. Genesis differs from the other Piaia creations because it is enriched by a typical geometric pattern: it is an inverted triangle, the various parts, perfectly balanced in weight, are projected towards the top through both vertical and horizontal lines.
While Over Bronze is created with an original metal alloy that amalgamates Bronze to one part of Steel and Silver; the overall view creates a futuristic effect. The suggestive vision of this work takes us in a collective imaginary desire of flying: supported by three simple steel tubes, which draw a shadow on the ground, it appears to fly in space without limits. Matter disintegrates to then reappear molded by the artist into the desired shape, pursuing the world of dreams, and the ideas enclosing the potentials that everything is possible and achievable. Piaia can enthusiastically turn all of this into reality, demonstrating it through his “Assurfivo” style which maintains its roots in the past, while projecting it into the future, thus creating works that have never been released before!
Meaning of Assurfivo:
This is his signature style, very personal, that the same Piaia baptized with the term ASSURFIVO, summing up in one word, the concepts of abstract, surreal and figurative: with this definition, the artist immediately expressed the varied aspects of his personality and his artistic research.
