Intro
Hannah Gallery presents the first solo show with Gigi Mariani in Barcelona. After his participation at the group exhibition The Alchemical Egg, Visions and Revelations of an Enigma in 2017, the Italian artist is featuring now Beyond the Black, introducing a selection of 14 new works. Research on works is focusing on the reduction of his language to the minimalistic expression and the geometry as well as leaving behind the regular use of the black niello as a central element to become a single accent on the pieces.

Artist list

Gigi Mariani
Our lives are filled with good and -unfortunately- sad events, of taken and not taken roads. Events imprint movements, trajectories, derailments, and choices. They force us to embrace changes, to consider new perspectives, to seek new directions, to discover new landscapes, to take into account new points of view and to expand our awareness. For an artist, whose personal life is inevitably bound together with his/her artistic research, the twists and the turns of life mark those changes that the community of art historians and art critics define as “periods”.  Think, for example, to Picasso’s Blue and Pink periods or about the importance of the visit to the Park Güell for Niki de Saint-Phalle
Each “artistic period” is a fundamental mark along the path of artistic research: it is a point of no return for personal research and yet, a starting point able to provide new sources of inspiration for what will come after.
So, there is always a “before” and an “after”…and a “beyond”.
