Luca Parmeggiani. Pittore, fotografo e bassista. Parmeggiani's poetry surfaces in three important categories: space, time and memory. The photographer's eye records and freezes city life, with the distance of the random moment. Road junctions, pavements, water hydrants and streets. Urban landscapes crossed by human beings: men and women alone, making anonymous appearances in a space never before seen yet very familiar. Then, following an interlude for 'decantation', painting is introduced, shaping reality into a vision. Brush-marks erase the anecdotal, to yield only what has been retained by memory. Visions at the height of summer, scenes of apparent silence, waiting. Slow considered movements blend colour, and colour with music: Charlie Parker and a handful of others. This is how the work begins, how the artist slips inside chromatic matter. What emerges, what takes on form, is another place - one lacking in history and time, but lasting forever. Luca Parmeggiani was born in Bologna, Italy, in 1958. Even as a child he had a keen interest in painting, music and photography. He moved to San Francisco, USA, in the 1980s, where he was influenced by the cultural trends of the era. He then returned to Italy to focus more specifically on music, while also beginning a career as music video director. During the late ’90s he merged his three passions, a process also resulting in his current artworks. He lives and works in Bologna. La poetica di Parmeggiani si muove su tre categorie fondamentali: spazio, tempo e memoria. L'occhio del fotografo registra e blocca la realtà metropolitana con la distanza della casualità. Sono incroci, marciapiedi, idranti e strade; paesaggi urbani attraversati da umani, donne e uomini soli, comparse anonime di uno spazio mai visto eppure noto. Poi, dopo il tempo della decantazione, interviene la pittura e la realtà si tramuta in visione. La pennellata azzera l'aneddotico per restituire di fatto solo ciò che la memoria ha trattenuto. Sono visioni da canicola, scenari di silenzio apparente, attese. Il gesto lento impasta il colore, colore e musica: Charlie Parker e pochi altri. Cosi' parte il lavoro, cosi' l'artista scivola dentro la materia cromatica, e cio'che emerge, cio' che prende corpo e' un altro luogo, senza storia, senza tempo, ma e' per sempre. Luca Parmeggiani nasce a Bologna nel 1958. Sin da giovanissimo appassionato di pittura, musica e fotografia.
