Charles Bukowski | Fuori posto / Displaced

Brucia all’inferno
questa parte di me che non si trova bene in nessun posto
mentre le altre persone trovano cose
da fare
nel tempo che hanno
posti dove andare
insieme
cose da
dirsi.

Fabian Perez | Cool Breeze and Cigarette

Emily Dickinson | The Skies can't keep their secret! / I Cieli non sanno serbare il loro segreto!

The Skies cant keep their secret!
They tell it to the Hills -
The Hills just tell the Orchards -
And they - the Daffodils!

A Bird - by chance - that goes that way -
Soft overhears the whole -
If I should bribe the little Bird -
Who knows but she would tell?

René Magritte | Le Baiser, 1957

Emily Dickinson | Vi dirò come sorse il sole / I’ll tell you how the sun rose

Vi dirò come sorse il sole -
un nastro dopo l’altro -
i campanili nuotavano nell’ametista -
la notizia, come scoiattoli, corse -
le colline di slegarono i cappucci -

Maurice Prendergast | Pittore post-impressionista

Maurice Brazil Prendergast (10 ottobre 1858 - 1 febbraio 1924) è stato un artista post-impressionista Americano che ha lavorato ad olio, acquerello e monotipo.
Espose come membro degli Eight - la Ashcan School, un movimento artistico negli Stati Uniti tra la fine del XIX e l'inizio del XX secolo, noto soprattutto per le opere che ritraggono scene di vita quotidiana a New York, spesso nelle zone più povere della città quartieri - sebbene la delicatezza delle sue composizioni e la bellezza musiva del suo stile differissero dalle intenzioni artistiche e dalla filosofia del gruppo.

Childe Hassam | Geraniums, 1888-1889

From: Christie's
Following a successful career in Boston, in 1886 the celebrated American Impressionist Childe Hassam (1859-1935) journeyed to Paris with his wife Maud where he would remain until 1889.
During this time in the summer months, the Hassams visited the country home of German businessman Ernest Blumenthal and his wife, who was friends with Mrs. Hassam, in Villiers-Le-Bel, a small town ten miles northeast of Paris in the Val d’Oise.

Thomas Dewing | Lady in Yellow, 1888

Thomas Wilmer Dewing (1851-1938) created a striking contrast between the precisely modeled face and arms, and the very free, feathery brushstrokes of the dress.

The painting was exhibited in 1888 at the Boston Art Club, where it was purchased by Isabella Stewart Gardner with the help of Dennis Miller Bunker.
The painting was then exhibited to considerable acclaim at the National Academy of Design and at the Paris Universal Exposition of 1889.
Stanford White designed the frame, which is original to the painting. Mrs. Gardner hung the painting in the Yellow Room, a setting perfectly attuned to the hue of the woman’s dress. | Source: Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum

Fredric Michael Wood, 1944 | Pittore impressionista

Fredric Michael Wood: "Art first came to my attention in a serious way as a boy fortunate to spend many of my formative years in Europe while we were stationed there as a military family.
I was hooked when I discovered an old impressionist oil painting, in a storeroom in our house overseas, of the French countryside, and I stared at it for a long long time trying to imagine how one could paint such a scene! I resolved to get beyond my little drawings and watercolors, and learn to paint like that!
Thanks to childhood, naiveté, I didn't know then how difficult that would be, when, later, much later, I would discover great artists of the past such as John S. Sargent, Joaquin Sorolla, Anders Zorn, and Frank Tenney Johnson, along with illustrators like Howard Pyle and others from the Golden Age of Illustration", as well as contemporary artists, Andrew Wyeth, and John Asarro, and so many others of my contemporaries, whose work would compel, but challenge me so"!

Lucia Heffernan, 1966

Da sempre amante degli animali, Lucia Heffernan - originaria di Taiwan -dipinge ritratti stravaganti di animali in scenari fin troppo umani.
L'artista ha ricevuto un BFA dalla Binghamton University nel 1989 ed i suoi dipinti ad olio dettagliati hanno attirato un seguito per il loro umorismo delicatamente satirico.
Le figure travestite ed antropomorfe di Heffernan provenienti da tutto il regno animale si dedicano spesso ad attività ricreative: nel punny Roller Chick (2020), un soffice uccello sfoggia pattini a rotelle in stile anni '80 e uno stereo.
Il lavoro di Heffernan strizza l'occhio anche ai giganti della storia dell'arte.
Wall Street Gothic (2020) raffigura un orso sorridente e un toro, i simboli dei cicli di boom e bust del mercato azionario, nello stile dell'iconico American Gothic di Grant Wood (1930).
Heffernan ha esposto in gallerie e fiere negli Stati Uniti ed a Hong Kong.
