ALTERED IMAGES: NEW VISIONARIES IN 21st CENTURY PHOGRAPHY

Book released: october 2011.





"They used to say that 'the camera never lies'. The next generation may find that difficult to believe. Photography has come full circle, from the 19th century obsession with realism, to the 21st century addiction to hyper-reality. Opportunities for artists have multiplied just as the problems have proliferated. As ever, theory runs to catch up with practice. The images collected here put strain on the old definitions and demand new ones. What are they? Well, they are not, strictly speaking photographs anymore. New territory needs new maps."

VISIONARY ART YEARBOOK 2010-2011
EDITED BY OTTO RAPP

Book is available now www.blurb.com/books/1732179



"In January 2009, Otto Rapp started a private network of Visionary Artists on the Ning Platform with a handful of friends. Since then, it has steadily grown and includes many well known Fantastic and Visionary artists. Many of these artists had been friends of Otto’s for decades, others are new to the fold. The yearbook, edited by Otto, is a celebration of the cooperative spirit of these artists and their accomplishments. There are over 400 pictures and illustrations on 160 pages, with essays by De Es Schwertberger, Sigrid Nepelius, Prof. Philip Rubinov-Jacobson, Helena Nelson-Reed and Delvin Solkinson, as well as numerous memorable quotes by our members. Three blank pages were added at the end of the book so people could collect signatures, if they happened to be attending an exhibition which included any of the published 201 artists."



IMAGINE THE IMAGINATION
NEW VISIONS OF SURREALISM

Book by nEgoist is available now.





"The book aims to show the variety of contemporary surreal art including almost 100 works in different media: traditional painting and drawing, digital painting, fractals, photomanipulation, photography, mixed media, sculpture, traditional prints, and more. The collection will be classified in 3 groups: Visions, Dreams and Nightmares, all this mental manifestation has been the source of inspiration for this revolutionary movement since the 1920s.

The mind gates are open to explore the deepest of the subconscious in this visual dialogue with the “other”, in the omnipotence of dream, in the disinterested play of thought."

Sharing a few images and studies from the "Project Cavaquinho" in which I was involved in 2014/15. More to come soon, including the book and photos from the "70 cavaquinhos 70 artistas" itinerant art exhibition openings. Cheers, people!
Cavaquinho img 6
This is image 6-  the making of of Project Cavaquinho. A cavaquinho is, in fact, an originally Portuguese small string instrument of the European guitar family with four wire or gut strings.  Later became  an important instrument in Brazilian music, especially for samba. It has lately been incredibly used for the bossa nova (huh? Yes! Against all expectations). Structurally, pretty similar to the ukelele (which in fact descends from the cavaquinho), but different, as there are significant differences among cavaquinhos from different regions of Portugal.

This work in which I was involved for some months, culminated in an important and unique national itinerant show entitled "70 Cavaquinhos 70 Artistas", organized by the Cavaquinho Museum, based in Lisbon, Portugal. The idea behind the creation of such a museum and association, in  2013,  aimed to document, preserve and promote the history of this unique instrument. As part of this project, 70 Portuguese artists were invited by master Júlio Pereira, a well known musician for the use of the most traditional instruments, to make a plastic intervention in one of the instruments. The whole thing culminated in an amazing show, national and itinerant, involving the artistic languages of 70 artists. This is an amazing initiative and I've been present in most of the exhibition's openings, feeling completely in awe and kind of proud to be part of it. It's amazing on how such diversity of artistic languages seem to breathe so well together in the same physical place. The first of this shows took place in Jeronimos Monastery, in Lisbon, and then it went to most important cities, both continental and islands,  and recently to Montreaux, in Switzerland.  More shows on the agenda. It may be near you, one of this days,  and i can only recommend a visit.

image 5:
Side composition details. As it covers the entire lateral part of the body, the idea was to create an image, while, when looking, one couldn't find the inversion point. Therefore, there are two skies (both near the neck/fingerboard) and no perceptible ground. it's like an endless thing. Crazy, heh!

Sound hole - study. Yep!  There's an ear coming from a wall inside the sound hole. It becomes more interesting with the shadows.

Through my painting, I like to tell timeless stories, in which action develops in different and often absurd tenses.

It may appear as a chaotic stop-motion sequence, in which frames range from the ancestral concerns to the cataclysm of modern societies, on what seems to be the verge of a self-induced apocalypse. The future, as in any unfinished story, is a prominent question mark, being the difference between dystopic and utopic impressions, sometimes, just a matter of perspective.
