Alla ricerca di nuovi artisti - L'artista che trasforma immaginario in realta'

Paola Pivi - Untitled

Paola Pivi
“One cup of cappuccino then I go”
Rieccomi, dopo ormai un anno di silenzio stampa, riprendo in mano il mio blog.
Quante cose sono cambiate da allora: ho cambiato città, continente, emisfero, lavoro, …e ovviamente la lista potrebbe andare avanti ancora per qualche pagina…
Se c'e' una cosa che pero' non e' cambiata e credo mai cambierà e' la mia passione per l'arte…per l'arte contemporanea…
E allora mi sono detta che e' ora di dedicare un po' più di tempo alla mia passione …e magari di condividere con voi qualche mia scoperta…
Per caso ieri sera mentre facevo delle ricerche su Marina Abramovic (sono una sua grande fan)…

Google mi ha fatto scoprire questa perla rara: Paola Pivi  artista italiana che trascorre meta' del suo tempo in Alaska e meta' a Milano, e che riesce a trasformare l'immaginario in realtà…

Inside Australia's largest & most exciting international festival of contemporary art

I am going to spend the next two weeks visiting the Sydney Biennale, the most exciting art festival of Australia.
 The popular Cockatoo Island is used as a site for the 3rdevent running, as is Pier 2/3, the Museum of Contemporary Art (MCA), the Art Gallery of New South Wales (AGNSW), and a new addition: Carriageworks.  
Tomorrow will start my discovery, but today I did my first virtual tour on the net and fell in love with this two artists, so I decided to share some details with you:

  Tiffany Sing - Knock On The Sky Listen To The Sound, 2011

Tiffany Singh’s philosophies and practice encompass influences as varied as modernism, eastern and western spiritual beliefs, Jungian psychology and ancient cultures. With Maori, Indian and Pacific Island decent, her cultural diversity enables her to draw from the many pools of knowledge, philosophy and mythology.

Cecilia Vicuña, Born 1948 in Santiago, Chile, Quipu austral 2012

Lives and works in New York, USA 
In the Andes, people did not write, they wove meaning into textiles and knotted cords. Five thousand years ago they created the quipu or knot, a poem in space, a way to remember, involving the body and the cosmos at once, a tactile, spatial metaphor for the union of all. The quipu, and its virtual counterpart, the ceque – a system of sightlines connecting all communities in the Andes – were banished after the Conquest. Quipus were burnt, but the vision of interconnectivity endures underground. Cecilia Vicuña began making quipus in the 1960s as an act of poetic resistance. She created a ‘quipu that remembers nothing’, an empty cord to hear the earth listening to us.

Amazing wright? Have you visited the Biennale yet? Any Tips?
By the way  the Biennale is FREE and is on from till 16 Sept.

Paddington - the fashionable side of Sydney

Australia is mostly known for its amazing beaches and legendary landscapes! Which is all good in summer, but in winter that is just not enough, but fortunately enough Sydney has much more to offer than that!
Sydney vibrant suburbs have so so much to offer! And I ve decided to take you on tour inside my favourite suburbs...
My favourite is certainly Paddington or "Paddo" by locals with his amazing boutiques, its Victorian terraces and interesting museums such as the Australian Centre for Photography for example!

Among all this gorgeous shops my 3 favourites are
  • Nelder Jones bridal shop: because the owner/designer is so lovely and the dresses are jus amazing!
  • The corner shop: because their pieces are so unique! Enjoy their collection of hand-picked fashion from around the world!
  • Ampersand Cafe & Bookstore: a charming second hand bookstore + great latte

But as you should know by now I am HUGE fan of markets, so my suggestion would be, that you visit Paddington on a Saturday when its markets it's own and I assure you you will not be disapointed; browse over 200 stands and find hunt for treasures....

New In my shop: Cute Small Artworks - Original Painting on Canvas

I do not know why but I ve always been quite obsessed with small things: as a child my favourite toys where matchbox dolls, when I went to sky instead of the normal sky I always wanted the mini ones, then when I decided to do some needle work I opted for crochet instead of knitting. And now It seems to have cached me up even in my artworks...
I ve recently been working more and more on small sizes the result are this amazing one of a kind little works of art.

The painting (13 x 13cm)  is made with true emotions and lots of passion, a a palette knife and a few brushes. The main color is gold (gold liefe) and it has an amazing texture!
The gold liefe also gives the painting a posh and sophisticated allure.

It will make one of a kind gift and also would be a  great conversation piece. Because it is co cute!
