Giacomo Piussi
Girl With Harpoon - Florence, Italy, 2020

2020

$2,650

About

ABOUT Born in 1967, Piussi was raised in Florence where he studied at the Istituto d’arte, majoring in sculpture and painting and completing his artistic education at Milano’s Brera Art Academy. He lives in Florence, pursuing painting, bas-reliefs in terracotta and in bronze, and bronze sculpture. Piussi presents an ideal, almost childlike world which can be found below everyday events, a step outside the flow of time, yet still a part of contemporary life, with a nod to Alex Katz and David Hockney. The drama, or lack thereof, is played out in simplified, almost abstract spaces. Pure in intent, Piussi’s oeuvre are inspired by the Early Renaissance. Snapshot images of a world reduced to its essence, the apparently comic-book style has echoes of Giotto, Paolo Uccello, of medieval illuminations. Rather than mimicking the appearance of nature, Piussi reaches for its essence, without distracting details. Women stand on the shore of quintessentially peaceful seas, self-contained, at ease, unwitting replicas of classical goddesses - a proud diver echoes Neptune holding a trident. “Queen Kong” in Piussi’s own words, is “a reflection on the consciousness of self. This is a person who holds herself up to her own gaze, stepping outside her physical self to see her place in the world. Quoting the film “King Kong”, here the giant is replaced by an enormous version of ourselves which supports us, by a Queen, ruler of our destiny.” Listing is for UNFRAMED canvas.
