"Thank you to my inspiration, Federico Fellini … Martin Scorsese, Diego Armando Maradona, and thank you to Roma, Napoli … and this is for my parents."
Congratulations to the great beauty.
I know that doing so it’s a bit nationalistic, and it s not a nice word, when the whole world should be just one big country, going on togheter for a common good, encouraging each other, recognizing our values and beauties.
Indeed it’s ridiculous that there are so much unwelcome differences between people, incredible that we must still differentiate ourselves from each other according to the little place where we born, nation we claim , gender or preferences, when the we share the same genes, we’re almost the same person, everybody just one.
But, i know some of those places ( i lived in Rome almost 6 months ) i know the actors and the director ( well i ve seen them before in movies ) and they put togheter so much love in a so beautiful representation of beauty and its modern contraddictions.
And i too have lived near Naples most of my life.
So it is not a national question, not bad as a reason of conflict, but just an emotional pause from this blogging. A positive statement. As in the movie.
How hard it s to enjoy the beauty of the present as the past one without conflicts , we inherit the past and never let the beauty wake our sensibility barriers, we avoid the present.
Emotions make us weak.
But what is life without it?
The main character lives this distant world of beauty without risk, it is all a big show, till he realizes he must go back to where cames from, his feelings, the pure reaction to the beauty, his real life. The values that really last.
We all live these troubled waters, especially me.
I try hardly to limit my emotions, that are my only energy, but can also slow me down, make me frail. There was a time in wich i tried to confine them in art or studies, but now it’s different. I have too to come back.
enjoy everyday the greaut beauty.
Not just buildings or objects,
but mostly people,
even if they can seem all hostile sometimes.
Congratulations. Thanks for the emotions.
Q:QUAL E' IL TUO OGGETTO INANIMATO PREFERITO?
My favourite non living object is… My byke!
And after some rides, i like everything with wich i can work or write down impressions, ideas, drawings, numbers, equations…. So paper and pen, and an ipad sometimes
The end of the day
Is when everything seems
to start just again
[ About to go to sleep at the opposite side of the world than most of my readers. Isn’t it magic? Isn’t this the proof that in reality the day has no end at all? We’re all living across the globe in the same day when life was born on this planet.
Hoping new ends always turn into new start, faidng and blending, just as the revolving earth goes on and on, or the colors appear in the morning sun, when the fog dissolves]
This is the silence
That wakes me at night
The noise makes me sleep
Lately i am collecting unfinished drawings.
Technicqlly it s hard to do otherwise.
So i decided to post some paintings that i love, knowing that i couldn’t do like those famous authors anyway.
I am not a painter, my artistic touch is pure desperation.
But i do have ideas, hopes, attempts to set a little order to everyday chaos with a different perspective, an unusual representation, a simple and peaceful symbol of beauty and love.
So i am just a teller of these ideas, not a painter.
Not an artist but a mathematical mind with an aerospacial engineer degree with much much love for beauty and peace and simplicity, and love for when ideas, logic and mathematics reach the world, when subjective and objective meet togheter , when numbers meet beauty and cold geometry meet shapes and curves of the human world.
What is beauty, is it just simplicity or even more, it is also difference, a new perspective, the power of evoking desires and dreams about our future, a necessity of the soul.
I am at the intersection between art and mathematics, between beauty and geometric ideas, between function and shape, i am where the changes happen, where the future begins, where everything new is possible.
Well there are many that work at this intersection line.
Others are better than me.
I do recognize the ones that changed the past bringing new perspectives, new humanity or new ideas and dreams.
That was art.
I do recognize most of you do it everyday without even noticing.
Thanks for such love and passion, and care and respect.
The beauty in the everyday things is the element of love toward ourself that keeps us going on.
The beauty you share, the new perspectives you propose is the love you search for yourself and the world, and try to communicate it and transform, the new ideas heal the suffering minds more than everything else.
I dont know how much usefull are these drawings of mine in this perspective, but well i try my best, and when i cant there are those ancient masters that forged love in wich we still live today.
A smiling hello.
The Modern City
Raymond Jonson, City Perspectives, 1932, oil on canvas
Portland Art Museum
Through studies at various art schools in Portland and Chicago, interaction with avant-garde artists such as B.J.O. Nordfeldt and Arthur Dove, and viewing the European modernism of the 1913 Armory Show in Chicago, Raymond Jonson developed a strong modernist foundation early in his artistic career. Greatly impacted by Wassily Kandinsky’s Concerning the Spiritual in Art and the paintings of Albert Bloch and Nicholas Roerich, Jonson became a strong proponent of the emotional and spiritual in art. By 1924 he had moved to Santa Fe where he helped form the short-lived yet influential Transcendental Painters Group in 1938, a movement devoted to abstraction that aimed to take painting beyond objective representation of the physical world by utilizing space, light, color and design to portray spiritual ideas.
Painted prior to Jonson’s formation of the Transcendental Painters Group, City Perspectives is one in a series of seven canvases that, as the Portland Art Museum notes point out, comprise the last body of Jonson’s representational paintings. Though still figural, the painting draws on geometric forms to comprise a cityscape, the slanted perspectives and hard lines lending a modernist feel. The use of strong, non-representational colors create a bold, emotional impact, while the gradations in tone elicit a sense of movement and emanating light, transforming the city into a modern, thriving life force.
