THE J. CIDEL COLLECTION / THE PRESS RELEASE: “WALKING PIECES OF ART”

Click and read The J. Cidel Collection – The Press Release:

https://www.jeanniecidel.com/press-releases.php

Series of my macro photographs (Lacer/actions project) – you well know them through my blogsite – were acquired exclusively by Jeannie and Johnny Cidel, of J.Cidel Collection (Florida, USA) and gave birth to an extraordinary collection made in Italy: different kinds of bags and wallets are produced in Rimini by Viale Parma. I’m really proud and glad for this collaboration.

The bags are polyvinyl coated 100% cotton canvas with my artworks printed on them. There will be some leather accents in every bag where we see the solid color. Everything else is PVC coated 100% cotton canvas. They are being produced in Rimini by Viale Parma.

As people know, my artworks are not paintings or digitally manipulated pictures. The are simply photos of the world around us (torn and decomposed publicity posters, natural cracks and scratches on industrial materials and urban stuff).

MACRO PHOTOGRAPHS ON THE FLOWERS: FOUR SHADES OF AN ORANGE ROSE

© Roberto Alborghetti

There is not a flower that, like the rose, can offer the possibility of having fun in the photo shoot. The color and shades of this orange rose are extraordinary. This type of rose seems to belong to the type called Monica, a variety characterized by particular orange flowers that have a long, straight stem, also perfect for use as a cut flower.

The single macro images I took are graphically presented in vertical strips, obtaining a chromatic effect that enhances even more the beauty of a flower that has always enchanted poets, writers and … photographers. A tip: take a look at Marysia Zipser’s Blog, where she posted interesting stories on the subject of the rose: https://www.artculturetourism.co.uk/blog/our-roses-and-what-they-mean-to-us

Non c’è un fiore che, al pari della rosa, puo’ offrire la possibilità di divertirsi nelle riprese fotografiche.Straordinari il colore e le sfumature di questa rosa di colore arancione. Questo tipo di rosa sembra appartenere alla tipologia detta Monica, una varietà caratterizzata da particolari fiori di colore arancio che hanno un gambo lungo e dritto, perfetto anche per l’utilizzo come fiore recisi.
Le immagini macro sono state poi graficamente presentate in strisce verticali, ottenendo un effetto cromatico che esalta ancor più la bellezza di un fiore che da sempre incanta poeti, scrittori e…fotografi. Un suggerimento: date un’occhiata al Blog di Marysia Zipser, dove ha postato interessanti storie sul tema della rosa : https://www.artculturetourism.co.uk/blog/our-roses-and-what-they-mean-to-us

 

FIVE YEARS AGO MY SOLO EXHIBITION: “COLORS OF AN APOCALYPSE” ON LAKE COMO (JULY 3-4-5, 2015)

 

A video remembering some scenes from my solo exhibition “Colors of an Apocalipse / The decomposed publicity posters”. It took place in LENNO, Lake Como, exactly 5 years ago, from 3 to 5 July, 2015, in the amazing setting of St. John Baptistery (XI Century).  The octagonal Baptistery and its enchanting structure  gave strenght and evocative power to my exhibition which displayed 25 works from my “Lacer/actions” project (macro photos of torn advertising poster on outdoor billboards, natural cracks and scratches, urban and industrial corrosions). Each artwork was introduced by a phrase  from “The Apocalypse of John”. Images and words to suggest a trip through hopes and tragedies of human life and beings. These some pictures from that beautiful event welcome by lot of visitors. Video: Soundtrack: God of The Drow – Audiomachine

MACRO PHOTO #30 / HERE IS THE LAST CARD: CRACKS (AS MAPS) ON THE GHOST BUS

CARD # 4

“I see with an eye that feels, I feel with a hand that sees” (J. W. Von Goethe).

A few years ago, the images of my artistic project “Lacer/actions” were used to offer groups of people a sort of psychological game, in order to provoke thoughts, comments, emotions, moods. I must say that, from what I was told, the results were surprising. No, it was not a Rorschach test, but my macro photographs simply stimulated personal and collective stimuli, ideas, feelings and memories.

To tell the truth, this did not surprise me, and it still does not surprise me. All this, in fact, was and is at the origin of my research activity concerning everything that is part of the process of decomposition of matter and materials: paper, glues, natural corrosions, scratches and cracks, industrial stuff… These images strike, above all, above all myself. Therefore, it is understandable that they then also reach the hearts and minds of others. They are not paintings or digitally manipulated pictures. The are simply photos of the world around us. That world that often we do not perceive or observe. A world which can reveal something about what we feel inside…

Some interesting facts are demonstrated by the same workshops that, in some schools, are promoted bringing the kids to “play” with the images I made. It is a fun game, which pushes creativity and the desire to express oneself, telling oneself with words, talking about shapes and colors. Yes, pure chromotherapy.

It is a special game, which I like to propose, in this month of June 2020. Every day, here on my Blog, you will find an image, in the form of a card: 30 cards for a month. This is the last one: the 30th. I propose an instrument, a means. You can add the rest yourself in terms of thoughts, moods, questions, reactions, ideas, moods. So play your game. And may the creativity be with you!

5 CARDS FROM “THE GHOST BUS”

DSCN7562 (640x480) (640x480)Also the 30th and last card comes from The Ghost Bus project, promoted in Nottingham (UK) with ACT Group (founded by Marysia Zipser) and Bartons Garage: “A visual adventure in the Land of Robin Hood”. It is the picture-symbol of the whole project. I discovered the Ghost Bus in Beeston, at  Bartons huge garage of vintage buses and cars. I was really impressed by one of the oldest buses, a piece of history of English public transport: it’s a URR 865 vehicle AEC Reliance made in 1956! Simon Barton told me that a vehicle-sister of the   “ghost bus” was documented in 1959 on a wonderful and unmissable film telling a beautiful journey through Italy by a group of English ladies and gentlemen. So, I took lot of macro photos around and inside the “ghost bus”… So, we began this wonderful “visual adventure in the Land of Robin Hood“. The project includes events, short movies for public performances and video shows, a cards series (reproducing 16 artworks selected from the 109 ones that has been created) and a collection of canvases and much more.

“Vedo con un occhio che sente, sento con una mano che vede”. J.W.Von Goethe

Qualche anno fa, le immagini del mio progetto artistico “Lacer/azioni” vennero utilizzate per proporre a gruppi di persone una sorta di gioco psicologico, al fine di provocare pensieri, commenti, emozioni, stati d’animo. Devo dire che, da quanto mi riferirono, i risultati furono sorprendenti. No, non era un test alla Rorschach, ma semplicemente le mie macro fotografie andavano a suscitare stimoli, idee, sensazioni e ricordi personali e collettivi. La cosa, a dir la verità, non mi sorprese, e non mi sorprende tuttora. Tutto ciò, infatti, era ed è all’origine di questa mia attività di ricerca riguardante tutto ciò che fa parte del processo di decomposizione della materia e dei materiali. Queste immagini colpiscono, prima di tutti, soprattutto me stesso. Dunque, è comprensibile che poi arrivino anche al cuore e alla mente degli altri. Lo dimostrano anche gli stessi laboratori che, in alcune scuole, sono stati organizzati portando i ragazzi a “giocare” con le immagini da me realizzate.

E’ un gioco divertente, che spinge la creatività e la voglia di di esprimersi, raccontandosi con le parole oppure con altre immagini. Un gioco speciale, che mi piace proporre, in questo mese di giugno 2020. Ogni giorno, qui sul mio Blog, troverete una immagine, sottoforma di una carta. Io metto a disposizione un mezzo. Il resto – pensieri, umori, reazioni, idee, stati d’animo – mettetelo voi. Dunque, fate il vostro gioco. E che la creatività possa liberarsi dentro di voi!

“Vedo con un occhio che sente, sento con una mano che vede”. J.W.Von Goethe

Qualche anno fa, le immagini del mio progetto artistico “Lacer/azioni” vennero utilizzate per proporre a gruppi di persone una sorta di gioco psicologico, al fine di provocare pensieri, commenti, emozioni, stati d’animo. Devo dire che, da quanto mi riferirono, i risultati furono sorprendenti. No, non era un test alla Rorschach, ma semplicemente le mie macro fotografie andavano a suscitare stimoli, idee, sensazioni e ricordi personali e collettivi. La cosa, a dir la verità, non mi sorprese, e non mi sorprende tuttora. Tutto ciò, infatti, era ed è all’origine di questa mia attività di ricerca riguardante tutto ciò che fa parte del processo di decomposizione della materia e dei materiali. Queste immagini colpiscono, prima di tutti, soprattutto me stesso. Dunque, è comprensibile che poi arrivino anche al cuore e alla mente degli altri. Lo dimostrano anche gli stessi laboratori che, in alcune scuole, sono stati organizzati portando i ragazzi a “giocare” con le immagini da me realizzate.

E’ un gioco divertente, che spinge la creatività e la voglia di di esprimersi, raccontandosi con le parole oppure con altre immagini. Un gioco speciale, che mi piace proporre, in questo mese di giugno 2020. Ogni giorno, qui sul mio Blog, troverete una immagine, sottoforma di una carta. Io metto a disposizione un mezzo. Il resto – pensieri, umori, reazioni, idee, stati d’animo – mettetelo voi. Dunque, fate il vostro gioco. E che la creatività possa liberarsi dentro di voi!

 

SPECIAL PREVIEW OF J.CIDEL COLLECTION: MY MACRO PHOTOS ON BAGS AND WALLETS

Colors as a revolution in style and fashion! Series of my macro photographs (Lacer/actions project) – you well know them through my blogsite – were acquired exclusively by Jeannie and Johnny Cidel, of J.Cidel Collection (Florida, USA) and gave birth to an extraordinary collection made in Italy: different kinds of bags and wallets are produced in Rimini by Viale Parma. I’m really proud and glad for this collaboration. Above (in the video) a special preview of the J.Cidel Collection. Yes, this is a new season for fashion!

The bags are polyvinyl coated 100% cotton canvas with my artworks printed on them. There will be some leather accents in every bag where we see the solid color. Everything else is PVC coated 100% cotton canvas. They are being produced in Rimini by Viale Parma.

As people know, my artworks are not paintings or digitally manipulated pictures. The are simply photos of the world around us (torn and decomposed publicity posters, natural cracks and scratches on industrial materials and urban stuff).

Una nuova stagione! Il colore come rivoluzione di stile! Le mie macro fotografie sulla realtà sono state acquisite in esclusiva da Jeannie e Johnny Cidel, di J.Cidel Collection (Florida, USA) e hanno dato vita ad una collezione straordinaria made in Italy, prodotta a Rimini da Viale Parma.  Orgoglioso di questa collaborazione. Ecco il video in anteprima assoluta! Le borse sono in tela di cotone 100% con rivestimento in polivinile con l’opera  d’arte stampata su di esse, come il materiale che altri marchi usano per i propri prodotti più prestigiosi. Ci sono alcuni accenti di pelle in ogni borsa dove si vede il colore solido. Tutto il resto è in tela di cotone 100% rivestita in PVC.
