Pino Daeni e Jim Morrison

             Smetterò di amarti solo quando un pittore sordo
             riuscirà a dipingere il rumore di un petalo di rosa

Kay Ruane, 1956 ~ Outside the window

Kay Ruane is an American painter. For years I've been drawing figures inside a room with micro landscapes out the windows. I think of the drawings as dioramas, or tiny graphite worlds. At first these drawings were formal in imagery, as well as strictly black and white. Recently, I'm paying a lot more attention to details like the kind of flower, the title of a book on the table or a painting on the wall. I want these details to relate to specific themes in each drawing, with a dose of humor and sexuality.

Gil Bruvel, 1959 ~ Stainless Steel sculptures

A word from Gil Bruvel...
I am artist because it is the conduit to release the ideas and visuals I carry daily. Since I was a little boy I have pursued my own exploration rooted in the unconscious mind and nurtured with daily practice using a variety of mediums of artistic expression. My artistic process developed organically from my father's cabinet shop to the stainless steel sculptures I create today.
I am very passionate about my current expression - Flow Series. It is the culmination of my life's work. The overwhelming feeling of purpose and expression started with my design of George's Horse. I wanted to do something new and contemporary, but it wasn't exactly the idea of modernity that led me to this design.

Kahlil Gibran ~ Sulla conoscenza

E un uomo disse:
Parlaci della Conoscenza.

E lui rispose dicendo:
Il vostro cuore conosce nel silenzio i segreti dei giorni e delle notti.
Ma il vostro orecchio è assetato dal rumore di quanto il cuore conosce.
Vorreste esprimere ciò che avete sempre pensato.
Vorreste toccare con mano il corpo nudo dei vostri sogni.

Emily Dickinson & Camille Claudel ~ Tutto imparammo dell'amore

Tutto imparammo dell'amore
Alfabeto, parole.
Il capitolo, il libro possente
Poi la rivelazione terminò.
Ma negli occhi dell'altro
Ciascuno contemplava l'ignoranza
Divina, ancora più che nell'infanzia:
L'uno all'altro, fanciulli.
Tentammo di spiegare
Quanto era per entrambi incomprensibile.
Ahi, com'è vasta la saggezza
e molteplice il vero!

Emily Dickinson ~ Se tu dovessi venire in autunno /If you were coming in the Fall

Alan King, 1952 | Massurrealism Art Movement
Se tu dovessi venire in autunno
mi leverei di torno l’estate
con un gesto stizzito ed un sorrisetto,
come fa la massaia con la mosca.
Se entro un anno potessi rivederti,
avvolgerei in gomitoli i mesi,
per poi metterli in cassetti separati -
per paura che i numeri si mescolino.

Quando l’amore vi chiama seguitelo
anche se le sue vie sono ardue e ripide
e quando le sue ali vi avvolgeranno, abbandonatevi a lui
anche se la sua lama, celata fra le sue penne, vi può ferire
e quando vi parla, credetegli
anche se la sua voce può mandare in frantumi i vostri sogni
come il vento del nord devasta il vostro giardino
poiché come l’amore vi incorona, così vi crocifigge
e come vi matura, così vi poterà
e come ascende alla vostra cima e accarezza i rami più teneri
che fremono al cospetto del Sole
così scenderà alle vostre radici, le scuoterà
dove si aggrappano con più forza alla terra.

Egli era attratto dai canti, dalla musica strumentale e dalle danze dei kletzmerim, i musicisti ebrei che si esibivano nelle feste o nelle cerimonie religiose.
