Sep 28, 2015 Blog by rupert cefai Follow

It's been a week now that you're here. Each year when you're back, your arrival seems to go somewhat unnoticed. I have no memories of anyone celebrating your advent, nor proclaiming happiness when you're with us or even mildly acknowledging your presence. But maybe it's just me. Maybe it's just my own bias against you that takes over. Yes, maybe that's what blinds me against you, unpleasant childhood memories of repetitive ends.  But then again, it’s not th... Read More »

Prizes, People and Pizz
Sep 28, 2015 Blog by Olivia Alexander Follow

I've just returned from Brisbane where I enjoyed soaking up the sunshine and some of the wonderful restaurants and cafes by the river. I was there as a finalist in the international Brisbane Art Prize. I didn't win the art prize, but you know what? I felt that I was rewarded in many other ways.   Often it's not about the prizes (and who doesn't love them!), and it's not about the sales. I mean, we always need more sales,  right? Lets face it, us artist d... Read More »

¿Una mujer de la calle o una pionera?
Sep 25, 2015 Blog by Cristina Del Rosso Follow

Una dama de la alta sociedad podía pintar pero no debía exponer. A Berthe Morisot se le despertó su vocación muy tempranamente, y a pesar de las advertencias del profesor, su madre la apoyó siempre. Esto le trajo más de un problema. ¿Era una mujer de la calle o una pionera? Lo descubrimos hoy leyendo una de sus cartas. Te invito a leerla en el artículo de mi blog: Si quieres recibir artícul...

The Inner Child Thumbnail

The Inner Child
Sep 20, 2015 Blog by rupert cefai Follow

'Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once we grow up.' - Pablo Picasso I have always found this quote intriguing. If Picasso was right, what did I manage to retain from my childhood that kept me from growing out of being an artist? Not an easy question to answer. Is it the inquisitive mind of a child? is it that feeling of awe, where everything is new? or is it that sense of adventure where even if closed within the constraints of 4 walls you still feel yo...

Sep 9, 2015 Article by agatino raciti Follow

Uno dei più grandi maestri degli scacchi Garry Kimovič Kasparov, sostiene che: «A livello più alto, gli scacchi sono un talento per controllare cose prive di relazione. È come controllare il caos.» Come si controlla il caos? Non sarà forse un’infimo desiderio barbaro dell’uomo dare forma a ciò che non si lascia mettere in forma? Il gioco degli scacchi, apparente pedana regolata da ordine e controllo mentale, regno d’opposti c... Read More »

Op 01.08 ’s avonds ging mijn tocht richting Antwerpen voor een bezoek aan verschillende musea.Daarbij besloot ik het museum voor Edelsmeedkunst, juwelen en diamanten te bezoeken, maar daar bleken alleen wat ziveren theekannen   uit verschillende  tijden  tot en met Art Deco tentoongesteld. Verder werd mij zeer vriendelijk uitgelegd dat er een ontwerp voor een nieuw museum in de maak was,  maar dat het slechts in 2017 zou klaar zijn. Een maquette werd niet... Read More »
