Meeting with artists and patrons of the arts. The topic of conversation is “Communicating With the Sign.” I presents my original linoleum cuts as well as the news papers tare sheets’ my work has been published on. Palazzo Gozzani Treville, Casale Monferrato, Italy, Saturday May 30 ,2015, 5:15 pm.
My talk presented samples of the more ‘traumatic’ part of my work , commissionned by the newspapers such as the New York Times and Harper’s Magazine…, relating to the most destructive aspect of our human activities. In contrast, the overall Palazzio concept remains the opposit of this. Its surprising elaborate craftsmanship , [regardless personal taste], it is absolutely undeniable . This fact alone, testimony of the astonishing richness, complexity and refinment of the Italian culture, invits us to reflect on our urgent need to balance our behavior for the surch of a different way of living, of relating to one an other and the environment. The “ARTS” , if its definition could lead us toward balancing our lives, could invite us to learn how to listen and to observe. And even so it may not be the absolut answer, at this age of ‘speed’, it certainly will NOT hurt us!
Many thanks to my guess for inviting me to present my work and sponsering this event.
