200.000 VIEWS!!! THANKING YOU WITH THE “GLORIOUS MORNING” VIDEOCLIP INSPIRED BY RUMI’S POEM (“SPRING ARRIVES”)

*

Yes, my WordPress counter has reached this morning 200.000 views! Thank you so much for stopping by my Blogsite! It’s really a pleasure to share with you day by day my experiences, events and works. Yes, this is a…”Glorious Morning” (sorry for the self-celebration!) as the title of the videoclip I created with a beautiful original piano solo by Gene Emerson, from Canada. Gene is a talented composer and pianist. I was really amazed and fascinated by her music. When I heard her “Glorious Morning” track  I immediately thought to some of my “Lacer/actions” artworks (natural and realistic images of decomposed publicity posters, cracks, scratches, urban and industrial signs). The clip is inspired by “Spring Arrives” poem written by Rūmī (1207 – 17 December 1273), a 13th-century Persian poet, jurist, Islamic scholar, theologian, and Sufi mystic (his influence transcends national borders and ethnic divisions and People have greatly appreciated his spiritual legacy: he has been described as the “most popular poet” and the “best selling poet” in the United States, among Muslims).

“Glorious Morning” is really an ode to a beautiful, warm and sunny morning at the beginning of Spring, – after long cold winter – when the world is changing, the flowers are blooming and the birds are singing. Such a great change in nature has inspired Gene Emerson to compose this track. Rumi‘s lovely poem ‘Spring Arrives’ is very close to the spirit of this piece. His poem is so much full of optimism. He throws away all dogmas, religious fanaticism and pessimism. His free spirited vision of love and passion for life is so overwhelming. Although the poem is 800 years old, but Rumi’s description of flowers and trees would never become old and it is very relevant for our Spring in 2015.

For the clip I selected nine pics recalling me in some ways the Ode and the surprising Gene Emerson’s  performance.  And thank you again for following.

MY ABSTRACT WORKS TO REMEMBER A DAY: 70 YEARS AGO IN ITALY THE LIBERATION FROM NAZISM AND FASCISM

*

Seventy seconds to remember the Italian Day of Liberation from nazi-fascism and Seventy years since the end of World War II . My abstract and visual works  – they’re random and realistic images of ripped and decomposed publicity posters on outdoor billboards – for a chromo and musical experience remembering April 25, 1945… I de-structured and re-structured the colors of the Italian flag (white, red and green) as a tribute to the dream of freedom comin’ from a Nation and from a People.

THE “TANGLES SERIES” VIDEOCLIP: RANDOM AND NATURAL IMAGES SEEN ON WALLS IN ROME

“So many tangles in life are ultimately hopeless

that we have no appropriate sword

other than laughter.” (Gordon W.Allport)

The “Tangles Series” videoclip is part of “LaceR/Actions”, a multidisciplinary project and research about the apparent chaos of ripped and decomposed publicity posters, natural cracks, crevices, scratches and urban and industrial signs and tokens (during my research around the world  I  collected so far about 60.000 images). Transferred on canvases, reproduced on lithographic prints or textiles (as pure silk), re-built on collages or scanned in videoclips, the images of torn and disfigured posters and natural cracks give new meanings and expressions to paper lacerations and matter decomposition.

One of my most recent shows (“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). In the last two years I worked on these projects:  “Contemplations and Lacer/actions” (album, videoclip, installations, inspired by Thomas of Bergamo Scripts, 1563-1631), “Atelier of Colors and Emotions” (a project which involved autistic kids), “Lacer/actions on Aluminium” (11 installations for Fai Private Collection, Italy). My works are part of Contemporary Art Collection (Mercatello sul Metauro, Marche, Italy) and participating to “An Exhibition, a Restoration” in Norcia (Umbria, Italy) from July 12 to September 7, 2014.

Now I’m working on “The Ghost Bus” project, in collaboration with Bartons Plc and Act Group, Beeston, Nottingham, UK (January-March 2015). Films premiere on March 27, at Bartons Plc, Chilwell-Nottingham, at 6.30pm. My next solo show (“Colors of an Apocalypse 2.0″) will be running on Lake Como, Lenno, Italy, on 3-4-5 July, 2015, in a special and spectacular location: the St. John Baptistery (XI Century), a beautiful example of Romanesque art.

CRACKS CHROMOTHERAPY # 2 / FOUR DIFFERENT PERCEPTION LEVELS OF THE REAL WORLD

Cracks is part of my Lacer/actions Project, about  the decomposition of torn publicity posters on outdoor advertisings (my realistic and not manipulated images are transferred on canvases, lithographic prints or textiles). I also love to work on natural cracks, crevices and scratches on metal, plastic or stony surfaces, or metal and plastic platings marking the passage of times…

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 through cracks magnifications are discovering impressive textures in what we usually consider waste and disfigured materials (as you may see in this photogallery). My Cracks – as well as all the other 60.000 images I gathered so far for my project – are just and only realistic, natural, random and not enhanced pics of the real world around us.

Fellow blogger Renato Aquino – from Portugal (Ourem) – is a successful Senior Operations Manager, Catering Manager and skilled hospitality professional. Through LinkedIn profiles he had the way to see my artistic silk scarves. He was really struck by the unusual design and he acquired the all series of three doing some special gifts. The parcel was delivered  taking more of the time required. Some days ago, Renato sent me this message: “The scarves  arrived… Anyway, it was worth the waiting. The scarves are simply beautiful and very elegant, my gifts were very special and well appreciated!!!”.

I thank Renato Aquino for his kind appreciation and warm words! The three silk scarves (created for a special limited-edition series)   reproduce details of images concerning torn and decomposed publicity posters, natural cracks and scratches, urban and industrial “signs” I captured around the world. The three silk scarves were made with the precious collaboration of the internationally known textile designer Bruno Boggia, who works in Como (Italy) for the most famous international fashion stylists. So, I had the way to turn “trash pictures” into an art subject (my abstract works from the real world are also transferred on canvases, lithographic prints, aluminium and other materials).
