Tracce apocrife - I disegni di Andrea Benetti in mostra a Roma

Posted by Andrea Benetti on November 3, 2012 at 6:00am 0 Comments

Andrea Benetti presenta in anteprima a palazzo Taverna, a Roma, presso la sede storica degli Archivi Legali Amedeo Modigliani il suo ultimo progetto, che si articola attraverso una mostra intitolata “Tracce apocrife”, curata da Christian Parisot, Presidente degli Archivi Modigliani e da Gregorio Rossi, curatore del Museo M.A.C.I.A.

La mostra annovera 13 disegni su “carta di Montesanto” (una tipologia di carta inventata da Andrea Benetti) realizzati con tecnica a carboncino, a sanguigna, a gesso bianco ed a seppia.

CLICCA QUI PER VEDERE IL VIDEO DELLA MOSTRA

I soggetti ritratti nei disegni, volutamente consunti ed incompleti, sono ispirati alle pitture Rupestri di tutto il mondo, accostati spesso da rivisitazione degli stessi soggetti o, addirittura, Benetti realizza una neo-simbologia, che va ad integrarsi in un gioco di forme e colori con quella reali, disegnate decine di migliaia di anni fa dall'uomo delle caverne.

Il titolo “tracce apocrife” nasce per vari motivi, tra cui il modo in cui è trattata la carta (che sembra antica di migliaia di anni), per i soggetti ispirati all'arte Rupestre ed al modo in cui sono presentati i disegni, ovvero inseriti tra due plexiglas, stretti con borchie in argento, che appaiono ai profani come fossero…

Scholarly Art

Posted by E. Marie Roper on July 23, 2009 at 12:30am 0 Comments

As a current college student, I constantly think about the art that is in demand. Just a couple of years ago, I was stressing over the art that would impress colleges and what I should do to stand out. Teachers and college representatives gave me advice on different sides of the spectrum. Should I display my skills of accuracy? or should I show my creativity and originality? The answer was of course: both. Now, heading into my second year of college, I am brought to the same question. However, this time, I am not sure both is the answer. Does the art world want to see accuracy? or solely creativity? While there is much gray area in between, I still ponder these two answers.

Material and Spirit by Dr. Dalia Hakker-Orion - comments regarding Marlen Ferrer

Posted by Marlen Ferrer on September 14, 2011 at 12:00pm 0 Comments

The act of creating plastic art is seeded within the ability of a few talented people who transform tangible material into unique artistic creations. The multifaceted artist Marlen Ferrer is part of this exclusive group and her works manifest the magical process of transforming natural materials, colors and tar into compositions containing spiritual entities which convey feelings and emotions and are interpreted by the viewers according to their personalities. Her attraction to the beauty and perfection of nature, the ultimate artist, inspires her to combine natural vegetative elements in her sculptural works, creating female figures [2 m height] from palm fronds.  The removal of the barriers between her personal life, feelings and emotions are reflected in the works represented in this catalogue which manifest the versatility of her expressive-intuitive amplitude. Statements about femininity, couples, struggles and ambitions are displayed in vigorous hand strokes with brushes and scalpels in various techniques on recycled paper or canvas. With force and assurance she paints, drips, floats and leaves her unique textural and chromatic stamp.



Her dynamic compositions are vigorous, sensuous and create a dialogue with the surrounding space.  The white industrial oil paint and tar are applied expressively "alla prima" revealing the different hues of the tar, without inhibitions or boundaries, and become clear images when perceived by the viewer. The technique and quality of the works derives from her long experience as a teacher and therapist, observational abilities and the inspiration of the biggest teacher- ÔMother NatureÕ. Her sensitivity and empathy to the human condition [pschycologically] combine with her rich experience and her experimentalism to create a versatile topography. The importance of the textural…

How to Discover New Music

Posted by Internet Music Radio on July 19, 2015 at 1:00pm 0 Comments

Is the discovery of new music an organic process, or one requiring personal curation? Connecting with music occurs spontaneously, through radio, the internet and today’s popular apps. Research indicates the sound of music strikes an emotional chord, suggesting potential motivation for discovering the latest songs and albums.

While the days of spending hours in record stores transfer to time in front of mobile screens-browsing digital libraries for the ideal selection-music’s connection with technology remains the path on our musical journeys.

According to Nielsen SoundScan, most choose to connect through music streaming services, which saw an increase by 54% in 2014.

Technology makes recommendations for playlists and stations through user preference. Rather than relying solely on spins to discover something new, today’s listeners can connect in many different ways.

An article in the Denver Post, ‘Are you done finding new music’, challenges the definition of “genuine” music discovery. The writer describes music consumption as an ongoing process, occurring on technology and in daily life. The assertion highlights the digital landscape as a sound medium for discovery.…

'Lila and Eve' - Film Review

Posted by Dominic Richardson on July 20, 2015 at 4:30am 0 Comments

Lila and Eve takes audiences inside the mind of a mother who loses her son to violence. The drama shows a proceeding emotional journey. After discovering the system hardly works the way it should, Lila (Viola Davis) attends a support group, finding strength and comfort in Eve (Jennifer Lopez)-a grieving mother who defies complacency. They pursue the responsible ones, identifying the names and faces, in order to bring them to justice.

Lila experiences flashbacks. One of the frequent being the spoken Serenity Prayer at the support meetings. The character struggles to find the “courage to change the things I can.” The film explores psychology behind summoning the confidence to accept the things you can not. The wisdom to know the difference is constantly at play.

Cinematography draws emphasis to interpersonal relationships. The camera focuses on interactions between characters, and pan according to Lila’s perspective. A resulting aesthetic exudes realism, depicting action through memory and in real-time.

Dialogue and storylines examine themes of motherhood, the definition of justice, strength and perseverance. The production highlights the moments of realization in direct fashion, painting pictures regarding the character choices which lead to retribution. The acting underscores the screenplay’s themes. Davis and Lopez deliver great performances; the entire cast depicts memorable…

Who Do Writers Say Influence Them? (Hint: There’s A Common Thread)

They never both happen to be female, though, and receiving list after list of five, seven, 10 or more male influences is disturbing. It points again to the larger issue in the industry: our habitual, unchecked dismissal of […]
