“When I paint an abstract picture (the problem is very much the same in other cases), I neither know in advance what it is meant to look like nor, during the painting process, what I am aiming at and what to do about getting there. Painting is consequently an almost blind, desperate effort, like that of a person abandoned, helpless, in totally incomprehensible surroundings – like that of a person who possesses a given set of tools, materials and abilities and has the urgent desire to build something useful which is not allowed to be a house or a chair or anything else that has a name; who therefore hacks away in the vague hope that by working in a proper, professional way he will ultimately turn out something proper and meaningful” (the artist cited in: Dietmar Elger, Ed., Gerhard Richter Text: Writings, Interviews and Letters 1961 – 2007, London 2009, p. 142).
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 Abstract informal bas relief, "Magma", 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.
This artwork is created with a carefully combined manufacturing of extra-fine materials used in sculpture to highlight the best three-dimensional and sculptural qualities.
"Magma" (2017) is an original bas relief sculpture by Gabriella Parisi. This artwork is accompanied by a certificate of authenticity.
