La Legge di Murphy | "Si riesce a far funzionare qualsiasi cosa, se ci si pasticcia abbastanza".

Della Murfologia Applicata alla Meccanica | Capitolo 4

Legge della perversità della Natura
Non si può prevedere con successo quale lato del pane andrebbe imburrato.

Legge della gravità selettiva
Un oggetto cadrà sempre in modo da produrre il maggior danno possibile.

Corollario di Jenning
Le probabilità che il pane cada sul lato imburrato sono direttamente proporzionali al costo del tappeto.

Robert Lyn Nelson, 1955 | Magic realism painter

Robert Lyn Nelson is an American artist known for his paintings of marine wildlife, particularly those in his "Two Worlds" style, which simultaneously shows life above and below the surface of the sea.

Artistic career

Nelson moved to Hawaii when he was eighteen years old.
According to Nelson, the turning point in his life and his career occurred when he encountered a group of whales while surfing off Lahaina, Hawaii.

"In learning to ride the waves, I also learned to respect the ocean...to feel its pulse with all five of my senses, and to feel its spirit at an extra-sensory level. It was a blend of magic and realism that I wanted to communicate in my paintings", says Nelson.

Wisława Szymborska: Contributo alla statistica / A Word on Statistics

Su cento persone:
che ne sanno sempre più degli altri
- cinquantadue;

insicuri a ogni passo
- quasi tutti gli altri;

pronti ad aiutare,
purché la cosa non duri molto
- ben quarantanove;

buoni sempre,
perché non sanno fare altrimenti
- quattro, be’, forse cinque;

Rene Magritte | Golconda, 1953

Wislawa Szymborska: Nuvole / Clouds

Dovrei essere molto veloce
nel descrivere le nuvole -
già dopo una frazione di secondo
non sono più quelle, stanno diventando altre.

La loro caratteristica è
non ripetersi mai
in forme, sfumature, pose, disposizione.

Non gravate dalla memoria di nulla,
si librano senza sforzo sui fatti.

Claude Monet | The Clouds, 1923-1926 | Musée de l'Orangerie

Alda Merini: Buon Natale!

A Natale non si fanno cattivi pensieri
ma chi è solo
lo vorrebbe saltare questo giorno.

A tutti loro auguro di
vivere un Natale
in compagnia.

Un pensiero lo rivolgo a
tutti quelli che soffrono
per una malattia.

"I'm a freelance illustrator and artist that specialises in making illustrations on the realistic side of things.
As you'll see through this site I like to work on a variety of subject matter from traditional Christmas cards to fantasy and scifi illustrations.
Above all I find it most satisfying to inject some element of story into my work.
My work focuses on a love of painting and drawing with a narrative context.
I enjoy using oil or watercolour on a variety of surfaces such as canvas, paper, timber board".

Maggie Rudy | Mouseland | Children's book author and illustrator

Children's book author and illustrator Maggie Rudy spent part of her childhood living in England, where she visited Beatrix Potter’s farm on a formative third-grade field trip.
She has since been making mice and their worlds out of felt and scavenged materials for more than twenty years. Maggie lives in Portland, Oregon.

- "I had a couple of felt mice, bought in an English toy shop when I was a child. About 25 years ago, with young children of my own, I took a pattern from those old survivors and began to make my own versions. Then the mice needed somewhere to live, and the whole thing got out of hand.
I began photographing Mouseland for children's books in 2013. I'd previously worked as an artist, showing paintings and sculptures in a gallery. Building Mouseland is much more engrossing, because I constantly need to problem-solve materials and fabrication methods".
