Interview: Paolo Parenti
Luca Curci talks with Paolo Parenti during FRAGMENTED IDENTITIES, the second appointment of BORDERS ART FAIR 2021, at Palazzo Albrizzi Capello in Venice.

Born in 1978 in Venice, Parenti graduated in the restoration of paintings at the Palazzo Spinelli Florence. He studied oil paintings and made copies from landscape painters such as Canaletto and Tiepolo. He attended modern paintings courses at the school of Pavillon Bosio in Monaco. For a few years, he is making artwork on symbolism and mind nature, also a spiritual approach. He has exhibited in Monaco and Venice. He is a member of the “Comité National pour les Arts” in Monaco. He works and lives in Monaco.

“I have the will to explore inner thoughts and collectives thoughts, trying to catch feelings, and put them in the canvas or by materializing an idea. I am also trying to dig into history to find out characteristics of the human beings, spiritual and cultural features which are common on each individual that we often forget to have. Trying to catch what is universal and say it why an art piece. My work should contain three main values: a meaning, a technique, and an aesthetic value traduced in a simple, comprehensive and actual language.”

Luca Curci – Which subject are you working on?
Paolo Parenti –
I am working on metaphysic and surrealism subjects, and trying also to express the inner thoughts of people and society.

LC – How did you get to your current artistic practice?
PP –
I did a Restoration of Painting School and took some courses on Modern Art, my father was a painter and antiquary, so I decided to explore the artistic field.

LC – Which art themes do you pursue? What is your preferred subject, if there is any?
PP –
The inner relation that people have with themselves and inner thoughts, and the relation with the divine. My preferred subject is eternity and Universal truth. I work with contrasts in colours and geometric forms.

LC – What is your creative process like? 
PP –
I essentially work with oil colours on canvas but I also use resin and plexiglass to make some sculptures.

LC – Did your style change over the years? In which way?
PP –
I think it became more minimalist and symbolic.

LC – In which way the artwork presented in our exhibition is connected with the festival’s theme?
PP –
The art pieces are representing an identity of the society nowadays, some fragments, for example, the painting “the way” is representing a feeling of some people have to live in a modern city in these times.

LC – What do you think about the concept of this festival? How did it inspire you?
PP –
The concept is quite inspiring for an artist as we can include and work on many aspects such as the psychological aspect and we can involve the spectator.

LC – What do you think about the organization of our event?
PP –
Well organized and dynamic.

LC – What are your suggestions about our services? Is there something more we can provide to artists?
PP –
Maybe a room to chat with artists and curators.

LC – What is your idea about ITSLIQUID GROUP?
PP –
It is a very dynamic group, with a good presence on the web and social media, bringing together artists from all over the world.
