TOOK THE SEASHORE ROAD

 

Took the seashore road

and sat and watched the sea

A bird became a butterfly

and landed on my knee

Who was the alien

whose land was it

Whose sea ?

She waved a wing tremulously

not sure of anything

the whole world swaying

And I not sure of anything

agreed with everything

that she was saying

As the pollen from her wings

flowered down on me

 

Lawrence Ferlinghetti

(from: Far rockaway of the heart)

Painting by Terane Ebrahimi, Tehran, Iran

"Untitled abstract painting" by Tarane Ebrahimi, Iran  

 

Tarane Ebrahimi was born on September 15th, 1982 in Tehran.

 

She’s interested in modern art, specially, modern lyrical abstraction. Taraneh started painting on November 2009 and tried various medias for work and finally she choose oil, and now she uses only a knife and oil colors in her paintings.

 

“Don’t ask me any thing about the background of my works, because if I could explain my emotions with words, I would prefer to be a writer not a painter. I just use colors for describing what’s going on in my mind or my heart. I always let the colors do their works and I feel that I’m just an instrument. So, some where I think, OK, it’s done, leave it”.

 Her paintings have been shown in solo and group exhibitions in Tehran.

"Above Three Bays" painting by  Jakthon Phaengtho, Thailand

 

Jakthon Phaengtho is thirty-seven years old and from the seaside town of Hua Hin, Thailand.

Living by the sea with mountains behind, I often walk the hills overlooking the vast expanse of ocean water.

Often, I ponder how lucky I am to see the birds of the air and the butterflies fly by in this beautiful land which we share together.

The Three Bays are a natural wonder of Southern Thailand's eastern side, and a famous site that many visitors wish to remember.

It is through art and the technique of bright, vivid paint on canvas that this memory can travel back with them back to

the places where people live and do not have this brilliant vision of loviness I have everyday.

metamorphosis and unification, darkness and light - delight

 

Fine Art Photo by Perdita Felizitas, Austria

 

Perdita Felizitas ist der Geburtsname, und bedeutet die 'Verlorene Glückliche'.

 

Alles Verlieren ist ein entleert werden und sein. In dieser Leere ist alles gegenwärtig, die Gesamtheit des Seins, so wie es ist. Das Ganze ist ohne ein Zweites, unteilbar. Darin gibt es keine Anhaftung, keine Wahl, keine Bevorzugung. Die allgegenwärtige Intuition ist es, die scheinbar wählt, sich scheinbar bindet, scheinbar etwas bevorzugt. Was ist, ist im letzten Sinne immer gut, und was geschehen soll, wird geschehen. Es gibt nur DAS, Stille in ihrer ganzen Dynamik, unendliche Wachheit. Es ist ein köstlicher Witz, dass es nichts gibt, und doch alles darin enthalten ist. Nur jenseits des Verstandes kann es 'verstanden' werden.

"The Four Elements" by Adel Gorgy, USA
"The Four Elements" by Adel Gorgy, USA

"The  Four Elements" by Adel Gorgy, New York, USA

 

Adel Gorgy, New York

Merging the conceptual with the visual into complex, multifaceted images, Adel Gorgy’s work extends the boundaries and redefines the possibilities of photography. In his work, the camera is a vital tool, but, unlike traditional photography where the artist merely records a moment, in these works, Gorgy’s hand and vision are always present, directing, decoding, deciding and defining to arrive at an image that may bear echoes of the original, but in an entirely distinct voice.

Adel Gorgy is a New York area artist who photographic artwork has been exhibited in museums and galleries in the U.S. and internationally. He has been the subject of numerous solo exhibitions. Over seventy of his photographic artworks have been published in a series of ekphrastic broadsides as the Art and Poetry series by Cross-Cultural Communications, and his photographs have been published widely in books and magazines.

"Waves of the Imagination" by Marsha Solomon, New York, USA

 

Marsha Solomon is an accomplished New York area artist whose work has been widely exhibited in galleries and museums both nationally and internationally. Her series of large abstract paintings titled “From Rhythm to Form” follow a simple yet powerful formula, in which the interplay of jewel-like colors, the variation of opacity—from soft washes to thick strokes of impasto—and positive and negative spaces all combine to create a dynamic image, born from nature and intuition, but, ultimately, about no less than the elements of art itself. Line, color and form unite on her canvasses to create an atmospheric, mystical space of serenity infused with energy.

"Mi sono seduta e ho guardato il mare" by Sandrina Piras, Italy

 

Le rappresentazioni dell’artista Sandrina Piras tratteggiano figure morbide e levitanti che s’incendiano e s’illuminano sullo sfondo di una natura appena sfiorata dai venti caldi e salini di un tempo arcaico. 

Nulla sfugge alla luce diffusa e lenta delle nature morte e delle vedute. 

L'armonia compositiva non suggerisce opposizioni dialettiche tra uomo e natura ma coglie quel supremo momento di grazia, seppur raro, che conduce il fruitore al riconoscimento di una comune appartenenza dei due enti.

Artwork by David Gerstein, Israel

 

 

David Gerstein has exhibited extensively at international venues in London, Paris, Frankfurt, Berlin, Rome, Singapore, New York, and Tel Aviv, just to say a few.

It is difficult to think of another artist like David Gerstein, whose work in recent years has gained such prominence on the local scene. Some of his works have been chosen to appear on huge billboards, as human and aesthetic images that aim to catch the eye and engage the heart, and to promote companies like Isracard and the First International Bank.

His monumental statues adorn Israeli cities; the Hebrew University ordered an ambitious and challenging project from Gerstein: the design of various statues which will symbolize - based on criteria of good taste, common sense and a high level of communication - the various University institutions and faculties; a television show has chosen to decorate its broadcasting studio with his works, in the hope that the pieces' tremendous popularity will attract viewers to the show.

 "Pensées Positives" by Alix, France

 

Entre symboles et allégories, les oeuvres du

peintre ALIX sont autant de paraboles qu’il nous appartient de

déchiffrer, de comprendre.

Ses oeuvres nous racontent l’histoire des femmes.

Elle recrée une mythologie personnelle peuplée de déesses, de

fées, d’elfes ou d’anges. Ce qui l’intéresse, c’est de faire naître

au jour ce qui est contenu dans les ténèbres de la mémoire humaine.

Dans son oeuvre, tout se tient, se combine, s’imbrique avec un axe central qui est la recherche de la puissance féminine.

 

Elle nous propose des pistes pour mieux comprendre les mystères de la féminité et nous donner envie de découvrir leur signification, leur message.

 

 Elle nous demande de dépasser la simple apparence des

choses et de percevoir l’imperceptible et l’invisible qui se cachent

derrière le symbole ou le mythe.

Born in Delft, may 1960,

now living in Kerkdriel.

His work is inspired by the works of the Impressionists, like Van Gogh and Mondriaan. He is a far nephew of Jan Schoonhoven member of the zero group (nul groep).

 

In his paintings he tries to bring back some realism in the use of the technique of Mondriaan; a little more colour and form.

The paintings he makes are based on a positive attitude towards life as it is.

"I have many and varied interests because life is for being creative and learning from others. I never came across an epitaph saying ‘I wish I spent more time dusting’ The world is a beautiful place and friends and lovers are the best things anyone can have.

 

I’m inspired and fascinated by edges and boundaries both in the physical world as where land meets sea and in our thought landscapes. My work is concerned with exploring and investigating the world that exists behind and beyond the everyday."

"I was born in Seoul, Korea. After college graduation, I went to France for 5 years to study and paint. It was good for my career and to experience another culture. In 1998, I went to America, another big change. Now I'm living in Los Angeles. Preparing my mind before I paint is a very important process. I need to concentrate and try to take in and use the power that I feel around me. It's an exciting time, an explosion of sensory awareness. My pictures are entitled "conversation" but they aren't based on ideas that can be put into words...."

"Took the Seashore Road" by Marie-Claude Eguimendia, France

 

Après maintes recherches, Marie-Claude Eguimendia a réussi à adapter une technique particulière à sa peinture.
Le final donne une certaine brillance rappelant la luminosité des émaux.
L’inspiration du trait la guide vers une œuvre souvent figurative qui trouve son épanouissement dans la réalisation des nus et des scènes de vie. Depuis peu elle se laisse absorber dans un certain style d’abstraction bien particulier.

  • "Ho preso la strada costiera" by Roberto Ottino, Italy


Laureato in Medicina e Chirurgia, Roberto Ottino ha inizialmente frequentato lo studio del pittore Anselmo Troletti, mentre alla fine degli anni ottanta ha approfondito la tecnica pittorica alla scuola di Pinetta Gramola.

Nell’atelier di Piazza Cavour ha appreso elementi di un linguaggio tipicamente figurativo, scandito da un colore limpido e capace di fissare gli aspetti della natura, utilizzato per trascrivere sulla tela le impressioni quotidiane interpretate e rese secondo gli insegnamenti della maestra.

L’interesse per la pittura si è tradotto in una attività caratterizzata da una serie di esposizioni personali e collettive a livello nazionale.
