ABOUT MARIE  DEERHEART

www.healingminds.wordpress.com

Marie DeerHeart (USA) writes from a rich text based in theater, art, and design training. Also rooted from the soil of personal experience, Marie, known to blog readers as ~Meredith, writes about mental health and its challenges; her value of developing creative pursuits as part of the equation for living a satisfying life in the face of mental illness and recovery include yoga, dance, writing, and photography. 

Marie’s professional background began in directing and choreography.  Her education in dance and theater lent equal weight to creating grant-based movement and learning projects for school children, grades K thru 12, and mentoring independent theater projects for high school students.  When mental illness changed the landscape of her life, Marie redirected her artistry and returned to school, studying architecture and art history (University of Minnesota).  Her most recent works offer imaginative perspectives on daily life and nature.

Roberto Alborghetti, 2014

Cracks is part of my Lacer/actions Project, about  the decomposition of torn publicity posters on outside advertisings (my realistic and not manipulated images are transferred on canvases, lithographic prints or textiles). Since 2009 I’ve been also workin’ on metal, plastic or stony surfaces, or metal and plastic platings. So, I entered the wonderful world of Cracks… We are surrounded by cracks. We live in a planet of cracks. And cracks may be considered “an active aesthetical appreciation” of what we call the disturbing elements of imperfection. My eyes and cameras discovered, in cracks magnifications, another astonishing textures in what we usually consider waste materials. Also my Cracks are realistic, natural, random and not enhanced images, as you see in this picture. More Cracks at   www.robertoalborghetti.wordpress.com/

The most recent Roberto Alborghetti Show (“Colors of an Apocalypse: An Intrigue for the Eyes and Mind from the Decomposed Publicity Posters”) was displaced for 100 days in the enchanting Aldobrandesca Fortress (XIII Century) in Tuscany (Piancastagnaio, Siena, Italy) from October 6, 2012, to January 15, 2013.
