“Art is my voice… and my silence. It's all that I experience, my emotions, my way of viewing the world: it’s me. It is with art that I can truly express myself without fear of being judged”
Pina Parisi lives in Braidi, a small village surrounded by mountains. Pina entered and won the National Marquis Prize and received the commemorative medal of the city of Palermo. Her works are inspired by King Federico II (the Stupor Mundi), Queen Costanza and by the whole life that revolved around the Swabian-Aragonese castle of Montalbano Elicona and by all the Sicilian women.
“My great passion is ceramics. I love working with clay and I always put myself into what I perceive. My works are born from the “land” of my “homeland”, of being a woman: a Sicilian woman”
The opinion of the Governance
“Sculpture and Art, intertwine in the cultural soul of a person, ready to emerge when the artist is ready. Colors are Pina’s strength, she portrays each piece with a unique talent that comes from the cultural soul of an artist. Pina is an artist who is inspired by our Sicilian history, a unique talent who is part of history with a pinch of today’s modern world”
