The Cutting of Light: Gioni David Parra


The Cutting of Light

26- 30 September 2019


Contini Contemporary is pleased to present the new exhibition of Gioni David Parra, THE CUTTING OF LIGHT. The show, curated by Francesca Centurione Scotto Boschieri, will explore the Italian artist’s fascinating world made of pictorial sculptures created by combining different techniques and exploiting the metamorphic dynamism of the materials used.


Gioni David Parra does not force form on matter but he is deeply connected to the original structure of the medium; he lets it show its inner tensions, its cracks and veins, considering them not as structural weaknesses but as expressive potential.


"Parra’s material is incandescent, it is made of atoms that dance, vibrate, and they are brought by a cosmic wind to compose and recompose, in anassimandric and pre-Socratic stellar visions. The Matterlights are born. Parra then continues to create essential and never geometric figures, as the result of that initial whirlpool. NOCUBEs are born, fragments of the same stellar discourse. In Bladelightand Matter Conceptual the artist dematerialise the heavy and monumental marble into a shining scale of that cosmos, in an anti-gravitational process, where the same marble goes up rather than getting down, because it is nothing else but an elytra in that powerful initial Big Bang." Francesca Centurione Scotto Boschieri
