6 HANDS WITH NATURE – HUMUS PARK

6 HANDS WITH NATURE – HUMUS PARK
“A fish swims in the ocean, and no matter how far it swims, there is no end to the water. A bird flies in the sky, and no matter how far it flies, there is no end to the sky. Life must be the bird, and life must be the fish. “Un pesce nuota nell’oceano, […]

IN A MISTY LAND – KRISTEN VESTGARD

IN A MISTY LAND – KRISTEN VESTGARD
“It must be this fog, lighted in the dark of night; this fog that reflects everything and hides everything, and suddenly reveals and unveils and confuses” “Deve essere questa nebbia accesa nel buio della sera, questa nebbia che tutto riflette e tutto nasconde e improvvisamente svela e disvela e confonde” Giuseppe Caliceti The sky is […]

NOT IN PAPUA GUINEA – GEORGE BOORUJY

NOT IN PAPUA GUINEA – GEORGE BOORUJY
As the artist George Boorujy says, “do not need to go to Borneo or Papua Guinea to see wonderful birds.” Just look around you. We just need to see those things we have around every day. We must not only look at them, but really observe them. So, without going too far from home, George […]

CLAY WOOD – CHRISTOPHER DAVID WHITE

CLAY WOOD – CHRISTOPHER DAVID WHITE
American artist Christopher David White has created a collection of hyperrealistic sculptures that imitate decaying wood natural appearance. Logs and branches of trees are masterfully carved, taking the form of human faces and everyday objects. Beautiful, isn’t it? And if I told you that these works are not of wood, but ceramic? Each node and […]

NATURALISTIC MEMENTO MORI – LAUREN MARX

NATURALISTIC MEMENTO MORI – LAUREN MARX
Perhaps we forget too often that everything has an end. The American artist Lauren Marx focuses exactly on that. Her works have always two protagonists: animals and the transience of life. If at first these works may seem grotesque and gruesome, observing them in detail we can read, through the gentle stretch of the artist, […]

SOUL STAGES – ROBERTO FERRI

SOUL STAGES – ROBERTO FERRI
“People need a monster they can believe in. A true and horrible enemy. A demon to define themselves against. Otherwise, it’s just us versus us”. “La gente ha bisogno di un mostro in cui credere. Un nemico vero e orribile. Un demone in contrasto col quale definire la propria identità. Altrimenti siamo soltanto noi contro […]

SCIENTIFICALLY ARTISTIC – CASEY CRIPE

SCIENTIFICALLY ARTISTIC – CASEY CRIPE
If we lift our eyes to look the night sky, many of us would dream of being able to get there, to be astronauts at least for a day. Someone else instead would prefer to be a surgeon, to save a life. Others would like to know everything about psychology to understand those around them. […]

INTO ETERNAL SLEEP – KRIS KUKSI

INTO ETERNAL SLEEP – KRIS KUKSI
Born in Missouri and raised in Kansas, Kris Kuksi spent his youth immersed in a rural isolation typical of the region. Introverted and lonely, Kris soon discovered his distaste for the popular culture of American life, feeling more connected to a distant and mysterious world, where the grotesque is an element of beauty and art […]

IMAGINARY FREAK SHOW – TRAVIS LOUIE

IMAGINARY FREAK SHOW – TRAVIS LOUIE
In the 19th and early 20th century, there was a constant look for the unknown, for what was different or weird. The Freak Shows were literally shows of oddities. There, you could find the most absurd things, people with unique abilities, such as swords or fire-eaters, but also biological rarities, like Siamese twins or unusual-looking […]

BITTERSWEET – PAOLO PEDRONI

BITTERSWEET – PAOLO PEDRONI
The “Poison Toffee Apple” is a candied black colored apple. Certainly the appearance is not inviting, but if you only have the courage to go beyond its appearance, tasting it, you can find that is nothing more than a sweet apple. This metaphor inspired Paolo Pedroni‘s solo exhibition: 18 inedited oil paintings on canvas tell […]
