  • About the Artist

Gioni David Parra was born in San Giuliano Terme (Pisa) in 1962. After polishing his style, improving it from a technical and thematic point of view, the artist has recently renewed and settled his pictorial message, looking for and developing the early and primitive conditions of the objects that are part of our life. We could define it as a sort of philosophy, we could call it "sprouting". According to Parra, Art should awaken visions of the early beginning of things, find out their hidden forces and spasms before their becoming real, their turning into "worlds". Mankind could find it an enjoyable or terrifying experience. As a consequence, his pictorial language is quite complex and varied, where different techniques are used, techniques that successfully result into something mellow and basically substantial just in a single work of art. To be able to shape a sculpture using such a technique is not an easy job; we can say the enterprise becomes more difficult when the artist wants to keep track of his themes giving them a tridimensional effect. Consequently, Parra has been forced to simplify, to ponder his style, making it lighter. On top of that, thinking about a symbolic register to inform us about his interior turmoil. The result is a successful balance between his restless creativity and the transformation of the materials used. The results are amazing for the extraordinary resilience of his works, their being "open" to utter those powerful forces that keep on urging on the bark just solidified of his primeval bodies. Parra's concept of making Art can have as its motto Galileo's "try and try again". He is deeply involved in experimenting and working on the preparatory stage, which clearly flows into his works in the end. Above all, there is his tremendous dissatisfaction with all that hesitates and lingers in fulfilling a fixed target, without overcoming it, something certainly inherited from Nietzsche and the Greeks. At the moment Parra works and lives in Lido di Camaiore, working with well-known art galleries. Some of his works can be admired in museum Foundations and relevant Italian and foreign collections. He is also present and his works published in several Italian exhibitions and fairs.
