BA CONTEMPORARY 2016 Vienna  
by
8/13/16 Posted 8/13/16

To deal with art and approaching it are the first basic steps that every artist in his research must address. To approach the various forms of artistic expression and to bring it into line for us, may often be a difficult but necessary challenge to us, when we place ourselves in front of an collective exhibition, in which different artists and their different visual languages interact, feel and live art together. The artwork reflects the individual expression of a general feeling, is influence... [more]

My Favorite Paintings at Pinacoteca Nazionale di Ferrara, Italy  
by
8/10/16 Posted 8/20/16

Pinacoteca Nazionale (National Gallery) di Ferrara, also known as Palazzo dei Diamanti, named for its rusticated façade of diamond spikes, impressed with effortless elegance of the building and its collections. The first striking piece greeted visitors was an "Assunzione di Santa Maria Maddalena" by Maestro della Maddalena Assunta. The highly stylized landscape was an idealized world, where animals, plants, and humans mingled together in harmony. The low vantage point and the r... [more]

My Favorite Paintings at Castello Estense, Ferrara, Italy  
by
8/6/16 Posted 8/10/16

The formidable and somewhat gloomy fortress, Castello Estense in Ferrara, Italy was surprisingly airy and even cheesy inside. Such as this whimsical ceiling painting, one of many, depicting carousing nude men and cherubim, who, despite in the drunken stage, allowed their stances and gestures to be regulated by some tidy order. Their pale flash tone worked really well against the elegant background of blue and pink walls and windows of a building façade, thus introduced another dimension of ord... [more]

My Favorite Sculptures at Palazzo Municipale in Ferrara, Italy  
by
8/3/16 Posted 8/6/16

During my brief day trip to Italian city Ferrara, I admired two bronze sculptures on top of the arch entrance to its Palazzo Municipale (City Hall) — Arco del Volto del cavallo (Arch of Horse Front). On the left, there was the seated statesman Duca Borso d'Este & Marchese Niccolo III d'Este and on the right, equestrian sculpture of Marchese Niccolo III d'Este. Of these two equally impressive sculptures, the more flamboyant equestrian made more immediate impressions. The overt masculinity and grandeur was reflected with his insolen... [more]

My Favorite Artworks at Duomo in Ferrara, Italy  
by
7/31/16 Posted 8/4/16

My brief excursion from Bologna to Ferrara led me to the wonderful Duomo, whose distinct façade of triple gables immediately brought me to a purified world of classicism. True to the expectation, my favorite sculpture inside was a sculpture of a bishop (and a saint?) standing in a niche with minimal decoration. The most striking feature was the resolute and clean lines of the soaring figure, reminiscent the works of the great Bernini, such as his masterpiece of "Ecstasy of S... [more]

Ventura V Series  
by
7/29/16 Posted 7/29/16

Evolution of the Ventura V Series. Anger and disgust sparked the first stage of what has become the V Series. My disdain for vulgarity, shock tactics and blatant crudeness with the male or female figure, and exposing it as art does not cut it for me. When calm prevailed, the challenge became how to counter this scenario, and to portray the female subject aesthetically and with integrity as an artist .I used myself as a model to sketch. The composition of the drawings ignited the genesis of what has... [more]

My Favorite Paintings at Palazzo D'Accursio (Palazzo Comunale), Bologna  
by
7/27/16 Posted 8/1/16

The Palazzo D'Accursio (Palazzo Comunale) in Bologna hosted a large museum with amazing art collections. Among numerous interesting works, I found two portraits most engaging. One was "Ritratto di vecchino (Portrait of an Old Man)" by Jacopo Robusti, known as Tintoretto. This portrait presented a robust old man with a striking set of abundant white beard, contrasting and echoing the black cap atop his broad forehead. The unwavering, penetrating, yet not-unkind gaze of this old man told... [more]
