Anne-Christine Roda, 1974 | Hyperrealist painter



Anne-Christine Roda is an French painter🎨.
She defines a highly original interpretation of the portrait:  in her work the painting is entirely subjugated to the portrayal of man’s fragility.
Her paintings, in terms of the choice of pose for her models and the neutral treatment of their backgrounds are as rooted in tradition, as her subjects are sourced unequivocally from our contemporary era.
Her choice of subject speaks directly to our everyday lives.

Giorgos Seferis / Isaac Levitan | A word for Summer / Una parola sull'Estate, 1936



We’ve returned to autumn again; summer,
like an exercise book we’re tired of writing in, remains
full of deletions, abstract designs,
question marks in the margin; we’ve returned
to the season of eyes gazing
into the mirror under the electric light
closed lips and people strangers
in rooms in streets under the pepper-trees
while the headlights of cars massacre
thousands of pale masks.

We’ve returned; we always set out to return
to solitude, a fistful of earth, to the empty hands.

Yannis Ritsos | The Meaning of Simplicity / Il senso della Semplicità



I hide behind simple things so you’ll find me;
if you don’t find me, you’ll find the things,
you’ll touch what my hand has touched,
Our hand-prints will merge.

Pedro Salinas / Anna Marinova | Wake up. Day calls you / Svegliati. Il giorno ti chiama..



Wake up. Day calls you
to your life: your duty.
And to live, nothing more.
Root it out of the glum
night and the darkness
that covered your body
for which light waited
on tiptoe in the dawn.

Svegliati. Il giorno ti chiama
alla tua vita: il tuo dovere.
A nient’altro che a vivere.
Strappa ormai alla notte
negatrice e all'ombra
che lo celava, quel corpo
di cui è in attesa, sommessa,
la luce, nell'alba.

Ghiannis Ritsos / Jeffrey T. Larson | Debito autunnale



La casa profuma già di autunno.
E una volta ancora siamo impreparati,
senza pullover né sciarpe. Nuvole inattese
dal mattino oscurano le colline. Dobbiamo sbrigarci
a fare un po’ di provviste, perché tra poco arrivano
i venti sbraitanti. I vapori della cucina
occupano il primo posto nel silenzio del corridoio. A uno a uno
chiudono i locali sul mare. Sul molo bagnato

Rabindranath Tagore / Marc Chagall | Unending Love / Amore senza fine


Marc Chagall🎨 | La branche de gui or Le rêve, 1928

Sembra che ti abbia amato in innumerevoli modi, innumerevoli volte…
nella vita dopo la vita, ripetutamente, sempre.

Il mio cuore incantato ha creato e ricreato la collana delle canzoni,
che hai accettato in dono e hai messo attorno al tuo collo a modo tuo,
nella vita dopo la vita, ripetutamente, sempre.

Ogni qualvolta odo vecchie cronache d’amore, è un’annosa pena,
l’antica storia di trovarci lontani l’uno dall'altro o insieme.

Maya Angelou / René Magritte | I know why the caged bird sings



The free bird leaps
on the back of the wind
and floats downstream
till the current ends
and dips his wings
in the orange sun rays
and dares to claim the sky.

Egon Schiele | The portrait of the silent pale girl, 1910



An effusion of my love, – Yes.
I loved everything. The girl came, -

Her unconsciousness
Her worker’s hands,
I loved everything about
Her.

Egon Schiele | I was first to see the eternal avenues of spring, 1910



I was first to see the eternal avenues of spring, the raging storm
and had to take my leave, -
endlessly of all the locations of life.

in those early days the level lands were around me, at that time
I had already heard and smelled the miracle flowers, the speechless

Pablo Neruda | If you forget me / Se tu mi dimentichi, 1952 ✿


Georg Pauli (1855-1935) Aftonrodd

I want you to know
one thing.
You know how this is:
if I look
at the crystal moon, at the red branch
of the slow autumn at my window,
if I touch
near the fire
the impalpable ash
or the wrinkled body of the log,

Pedro Salinas / Francisco Ribera Gómez | I look for you! ✿


Francisco Ribera Gómez🎨 (Spanish painter, 1907-1996)

Yes, behind other people
I look for you.
Not in your name if they say it,
not in your image if they paint it.
Behind, behind, beyond.
Sì, al di là della gente
ti cerco.
Non nel tuo nome, se lo dicono,
non nella tua immagine, se la dipingono.
Al di là, più in là, più oltre.

Salvatore Quasimodo / Fabian Perez | Mi chiedi parole..



Mi chiedi parole. Ma il tempo
precipita come un masso sulla mia anima
che vuole certezze, e più non ha sillabe
da offrire se non quelle silenziose
del sangue legate al tuo nome,
o mia vita, mio amore senza fine.
