DAYDREAMING MAGAZINE November 2009 ONLINE
The quarrel between man, nature and art, Unavoidable down the centuries, is a matter worthy an endless soap-opera. For or against, willing or not, the artist has always brood in his own shadow over the lunatic terror for the fact that his creation wouldn’t have bear the comparison with Mother Earth. Many took their distance, other ridiscover her right now, some did never abandon her. The confrontation’s just begun…
Nanni Spano (Metamorphosis):
High definition and macro modality investigating on details and texture of algas, of cortex, on stones and leaves, have unattendedly penetrated from other image-worlds with a violent meanwhile classical synthesis. While we’re expecting the image to be clear and still like crystal, meeting our visual pleasure, the artist contaminates and melts its elements and sense, slipping in the disquiet for an impossible unalterability- (G. Carbi)
Dan May (Illustrations):
A fairy Arcadia is being illustrated, populated with Beauty-nymphs and Beast-satyrs, fainting infancy and insects. Melancholic poetry enlighted masterfully from the inside.
Heiko Muller (Drawing/Mixed Media/Oil):
Through an unconventional use of stylistic sovrapposition, the artist lets us attend a very interesting mediation between the expressive medium and the natural datum, between illustration and photography, between Pop echoes and Action paintings, breathing life into a powerful and immediate iconography confronting nature and history.
Scott G.Brooks (Painting):
Here’s the umpteenth violence to the american dream, far from being gratuitous, together with the umpteenth homage to renaissance art, far from being imitation. Deformities legitimates themselves with confident looks of disquieting wellbeing; distortion meets smiling our eye. What if the world was this?
De Becker ( Into the wild):
The transposition of the urban subject in the natural datum, fundamental intuition, provokes a grotesque disorientation, but not only… the gamut of sensations provided by these images indicates a relational investigation between man and nature that is far from being unveiled.
