all strictly painted oil on canvas with the technique invented by the Master called "Assurfivo", where Ass. stands for "astratto" (abstract), Sur. for "surreale" (surreal or dream), and Fivo for "figurative" (figurative or hyperrealism). The fusion of these three artistic tendencies and the various oil based passages are difficult to achieve, but valuable and unique artworks in the final result.
built using Carrara statuary marble, resina and bronze casting through lost wax processes, the statues are created with the face, the hands and the feet, where the typical Piaia executional skills stand out. This world premier innovation consists in the creation of the body: the volume structure is built around a double helix which wraps around itself; with a "full" visual effect in which the form is underlined through a coil, while the void appears suddenly, leaving room for imagination. This is a very difficult job, attempted by many but never actually realized, characterized by a precise study of solids and voids, realized in a perfect balance of matter that does not need any support. These statues employ strange perception and perspective, and seem impossible to achieve in reality, furthermore, they take us back to a strong mathematical component by the master who inspired Piaia: Dutch graphic engraver Maurits Cornelis Escher, 1898-1972. Only a great compositional experience and a deep knowledge of the subject, have allowed Roberto Piaia, after years of intense research and study, to realize his creations through drawings, sketches and oils on canvas with bodies outlined through a spiral.
The Master often returns to Pietrasanta (Tuscany) to form his sculptures in precious Carrara marble and resin, as well as bronze castings in the renowned foundries of the city. But the choice to paint and live most of the year in this wonderful medieval town was made because of long-standing German friendships, and for the support and the acknowledgement of the great German Nation towards any artistic expression.
