A new date with “Il sole e la neve”(The Sun and the Snow), this time centred on the creative work of Enrico Robusti, is scheduled at 5.00 pm on Thursday October 18 2012 at the Provincial Heaquarters in via Martiri della Libertà, Parma.
There will be a presentation of artist’s works inspired by the writings of Louis Alfieri, together with three other works, including L’urlo freddo (The Cold Scream) and Tana (Lair), in an exhibition which will last for two weeks. A show created by the musician and composer from Parma, Alexander Nidi, will welcome the guests into the atmosphere of the book “Il sole e la neve”.
Stefania Provinciali, art critic of the Gazzetta di Parma and exhibition curator, made the following comments on Robusti’s work:
“Entrusting the visual narrative of a written text to an artist is an old practice. The artist’s hand enhances the pages and makes the narrative more alluring, even though it already has its own refined charm. The world contained in the images of the book “Il sole e la neve” by Luigi Alfieri (Fermoeditore) bears the signature of Enrico Robusti, a master in interpreting the human condition in society. These pages are something else, however, and the artist proves himself capable of conveying both the playful and painful aspects of everyday life with his pencil, while departing with the same expressive force from the canons of the his usual biting pictorial narrative in which life itself is the drama. This is a necessary note because not all artists are capable of assimilating the subtle reflections that this “rural fairy tale” presents and unmistakeably outlining, where the perspective clashes with tradition, all the needs of daily living in the faces, gestures and life. The “fairy tale” brings a feeling back to life and the pencil on the blank sheet of paper traces the truth of the image.”
