by Roberto Braida
Roberto Braida was born in La Spezia in 1953, where he continues to live and work. From a very young age, he dedicated himself to drawing and painting. His professional activity in painting began in 1974 with his first solo exhibition and, since then, there have been numerous exhibitions and presentations by the artist and the awards he has received, both in Italy and in other countries. Simultaneously, Braida works in scenography and costumes.
The painter’s elegant horizons lead the visitor on a fantastic journey, giving him the feeling of being in front of the sea. But there is no sea. It’s a magnificent deception, a hypnotic trance induced by the master’s skill through colour. Braida will be referred to by history not as a mannerist of the landscape and the panoramic views, but as a silent explorer far away from the depths of the soul that, from his land between Liguria and Upper Tuscany, leaves us observers the task of not dwelling on what the eye sees. He challenges us to activate the acuity of a more mature thought, because in each of his works – from the smallest to the most prodigious – we can read: “beyond”.
