“I would give the greatest sunset in the world for one sight of New York's skyline. Particularly when one can't see the details. Just the shapes. The shapes and the thought that made them. The sky over New York and the will of man made visible. What other religion do we need? And then people tell me about pilgrimages to some dank pesthole in a jungle where they go to do homage to a crumbling temple, to a leering stone monster with a pot belly, created by some leprous savage. Is it beauty and genius they want to see? Do they seek a sense of the sublime? Let them come to New York, stand on the shore of the Hudson, look and kneel. When I see the city from my window - no, I don't feel how small I am - but I feel that if a war came to threaten this, I would throw myself into space, over the city, and protect these buildings with my body.”
― Ayn Rand, The Fountainhead
Gabriella Parisi has long been interested in the subconscious and mental representations in art. How does an artist take good self-care with his inner self? What is the power of the subconscious? What inspires the creative process? Her painting art travels from unconscious to conscious, searching for a way to articulate what seems indefinable and to express the power of art to reveal what is within, to challenge oneself to face what is unexplored, and eventually to begin to enriching themselves.
