Pablo Neruda / Victor Nizovtsev

Chiedo silenzio / I ask for silence / Pido silencio
Ora, lasciatemi tranquillo.
Ora, abituatevi senza di me.

Io chiuderò gli occhi

E voglio solo cinque cose,
cinque radici preferite.

Una è l'amore senza fine.

La seconda è vedere l'autunno.
Non posso vivere senza che le foglie
volino e tornino alla terra.

La terza è il grave inverno,
la pioggia che ho amato, la carezza
del fuoco nel freddo silvestre.

La quarta cosa è l'estate
rotonda come un'anguria.

La quinta cosa sono i tuoi occhi.

Matilde mia, beneamata,
non voglio dormire senza i tuoi occhi,
non voglio esistere senza che tu mi guardi:
io muto la primavera
perché tu continui a guardarmi.

Umberto Mazzone, 1941

Umberto Mazzone, pittore italiano, è nato a Catania. Attualmente vive e opera a Bevagna (PG), proseguendo un lungo percorso artistico, iniziato a soli dieci anni. Proprio a quell’età, stimolato dalla sua insegnante di disegno, si accosta al variegato mondo dell’arte, che cattura la sua giovane fantasia, consentendogli di scoprire le sue possibilità fantastiche e umane, attraverso segni ed i colori. Da allora segue una ricerca artistica, lievitata dagli studi classici e soprattutto dal mondo greco e orientale, che lo porterà a sperimentazioni sempre nuove, legate ai valori di quelle civiltà che ci hanno segnato sia come popoli, che come individui.

Victor Nizovtsev, 1965 | Siren song

Виктор Низовцев 1965 | Russian Fantasy painter
Виктор Низовцев is a Russian painter, a master of whimsical and narrative art. Subjects include fantasy landscapes, russian folklore, theatre and mermaids. I've been on the hunt for Nizovtsev's mermaids for a while now, and in total I have found 9 of them on the internet. I know there are more. He does them so well, and with such care, I imagine his studio overrun with them. I love the calm beauty of his mermaids, relaxing in pools of lanterns, or sleeping at the bottom of the sea. Their fishtails are magnificent, with gold coinlike scales that practically shimmer on the canvas.

Pablo Neruda e Brita Seifert ~ Il Bacio

Pablo Neruda e Brita Seifert | La Poesia
Ti manderò un bacio con il vento
e so che lo sentirai,
ti volterai senza vedermi ma io sarò li
Siamo fatti della stessa materia
di cui sono fatti i sogni
Vorrei essere una nuvola bianca
in un cielo infinito
per seguirti ovunque e amarti ogni istante
Se sei un sogno non svegliarmi
Vorrei vivere nel tuo respiro
Mentre ti guardo muoio per te
Il tuo sogno sarà di sognare me
Ti amo perché ti vedo riflessa
in tutto quello che c'è di bello
Dimmi dove sei stanotte
ancora nei miei sogni ?
Ho sentito una carezza sul viso
arrivare fino al cuore
Ho sentito una carezza sul viso
arrivare fino al cuore
Vorrei arrivare fino al cielo
e con i raggi del sole scriverti ti amo
Vorrei che il vento soffiasse ogni giorno
tra i tuoi capelli,
per poter sentire anche da lontano
il tuo profumo!

Hamish Blakely ~ Love letters to my wife

Hamish Blakely, British painter: - In much of my work, I paint Gail, my wife. This is especially evident in my latest pieces. These paintings owe their character and presence to her. Even more than the aesthetic allure and depth Gail brings as the subject, it is her imagination whilst choreographing our many photo shoots, that makes the paintings work. She doesn't appear merely as a decorative or passive pictorial element; she endows the work with nobility, nuance, intrigue and grace. This, in part, she does by making the poses look natural while showing some form of tension in the anatomy. There is also a sense that she is unconcerned about the viewer, cosseted in her own world. For an Artist, this has to be the finest definition of inspiration I can conceive of. A customer explained this far more eloquently, "You are painting love letters to your wife"..

In 1917 Matisse relocated to Cimiez on the French Riviera, a suburb of the city of Nice. His work of the decade or so following this relocation shows a relaxation and a softening of his approach.
This "return to order" is characteristic of much art of the post-World War I period and can be compared with the neoclassicism of Picasso and Stravinsky as well as the return to traditionalism of Derain.
