NEW REPRESENTED ARTIST
CASA TRIÂNGULO, SÃO PAULO, BRASIL
Casa Triângulo is pleased to announce that it now represents the artist Rodolpho Parigi. The opening of his first individual exhibition in the gallery, curated by Ivo Mesquita, will be on April 10, 2018.
Parigi's works arise from the clash between reality and fiction. From drawings to paintings and performance works, the artist explores the possibilities of a self-imagined sci-fi world inhabited by hybrid or androgynous figures of sui generis beauty and shapes that come to the surface. On his images, ideas of body, fauna and flora are explored, exposing the limits between material and artificial. Anamorphic forms and bodies are fused and remodeled on explosive surfaces that arise from within the physical limitations of the canvas. Parigi's deep interest and fascination for the entrails, detailed drawings of anatomy, Japanese prints and pornography, appear in his works. Working with references that range from classical art to pop culture, the artist creates a visual, virtual and baroque reality which he makes visible by graphic lifelike renderings of invented objects, shapes and bodies.
