They defend the sport against those who do not consider it such, declaring boxing an art which has inspired the work of all types of artists. Including, of course, Emiliano Gironella Parra.The following excerpts are representative of the authors´recognition and admiration for Emiliano´s work in this exhibition.

EDUARDO LAMAZÓN: “Emiliano Gironella Parra is not scared by the relentless blow of the red gloves when they reach their destination, shaking the occasional opponent. It inspires him to paint. He knows that an invincible boxer is, at some point, every man, because he embodies a dark universal desire.

”He says that the challenge of adding color to real life is perennially seductive… he has gathered enough material here to create a narrative about boxing that has the entity of a finished work.”

ARTURO RIPSTEIN: “The work of Gironella that accompanies this catalog is not the mere description of moments. The truth in art is not the reproduction, it is the construction… Gironella succeeds.” 

En esta esquina, an exhibition that brings together 36 works by Emiliano Gironella Parra and 36 by Alfredo García Revuelta, was exhibited at the Centro Cultural de Arte Contemporáneo, Mexico City, in 2000. Emiliano’s work is made up of monotypes, encaustics, prints, oils on wood, mosaic, oil and wood carving, some paintings made with mixed media, bronzes on wood bases and wood carvings. The work of García Revuelta includes paintings made with beads, sequins, oils on canvas, acrylics on paper, embroidery and polychrome wood.
