Presentation: Horizons

International Art Exhibition
18 - 26 March, 2006
Villa La Ferdinanda, Artimino (Po) - Italy

It is in the spiritual nature of artists to dislike limits. Their talents and sensibility prevent their conditioning by the norms of society, permitting their eyes and art to go beyond any border. They move forward into the known and unknown, testing the horizons of real and unreal, ending and unending, visible and invisible.

"Horizons" will uncover the endless facets tied to the interpretation of this artistic theme. It will permit us to experience the artists' vision of Horizons involving memories, souls, domesticity and nature.

The Soul Horizons. The emotional aspect intrinsically remains connected to many artworks, able to move although the incessant bombing of images, of provocations, of anestetisms that every day we endure; the sign, the chromie, the texture still able to make us feel strong feelings and pulsions. “Horizons” in which live tensions, vibrations, traces of existence RIVERSATE in flowing of emotions and painted, carved, photographed images.

The Domestical Horizons. Also the domestic horizons, daily under our eyes, constitute a source of inspiration for the artists who, catching, charmed, the poetry and the essence, transform them in lyric, surreal, fantastic images depending on their interpretation and momentanly mood.

The Natural Horizons. The power of colours, of shapes, of sensations, of the suggestions and of perfumes of the natural borders wraps the artists overwhelming and stimulating their senses. The Landscape, always changeable and rich of infinity shades. It reveals itself in its whole truth and power to those artists who daily paint it, showing unlimited faceting and interpretation.

The Horizons of the memory. A particular aspect that the curators of the exhibition want to inquire and at the same time to evidence is the emotional and memorial aspect of making art; "in the works rich of intentions the vision" - has written Valerio Grimaldi in a text of his - "tracima for that mysterious tie that joins painting and psychical reality, painting and inquietudine of existing, nearly a continuation of apparitions, of rivelazioni if it is true, as it is true, that the artwork as conscious written is, at the same time, unconscious design, design of itself, graphical self-portrait of the author also in its most insignificant drawn (tratto). In this way the artists sovverte distance and presence, fantasy and story, truth and fiction in the rooms of their memory ".
