"..il mio compito è di creare Kaos nell'Ordine"

Thanks JP. I believe the answer is Yes, the role of the artist is always political. The ideal of a woman, promoted by fashion (and others, even men's ones, like Playboy, etc) magazines means nothing to me on desire wise. I can flip tens of magazines pages and see nothing on those women. All that studio lighten pictures breaks any attempt of creating life. This is the representation of all women who I've been intimate with, is how I remember of a moment of intimacy with women. This is what arouses me, so, the ideal of a woman to me. .. [Goto..]

Bellissima. How the fashion world can set an ideal of a woman that has the angular shape of a man I could never fathom. I'm in complete agreement with your celebration of the richness and generosity of feminine beauty with this painting. The fact that she steps out from a background of mundane newsprint (representing a power that conditions how we should think) and renders her nudity instead with a self-confidence that challenges the observer's acceptance of the norm. Instead her sensual warmth and normality defies our readiness to accept as true what we read as an ideal in the newspapers or the images we see on television.

I found the elements in my garden and in my gardens tools hut. Then i tried different ways to assemble them to have equilibium and light. At the end i have choosen this. ( the market box is used just to shade the light [GoTo..]

I dont know how to manage the log.
Thank you Kristina! It's nice to hear from other artists about my work. This painting has a lot of energy indeed. I'm very happy with this outcome, and working in a series of portraits with the same approach. [GoTo..]
Sorry my short responses. My born language is portuguese, so it's hard for me to put some feelings into words (new discovered ones regarding art)in a foreign language. But I am enjoying very much this dialog. It's good to hear from someone about my work, it's even better if it is someone from a different culture and continent, and with a great work such as yours. Thanks! [GoTo..]
I went to art school, but I've been working on graphic design, animation and video business ever since. I'm discovering color in a new way for me. What started as a practice and study, with a simple premise that was using pure color to get volume, has reached a good response with people. I don't know where it could take me, and this is the best part [GoTo..]

nice story, i we like to learn more on this issue please any body [GOTO..]
There are not many places to exhibit, in this local area without having to join a art group. There are two but I decline to join as they do selection on the art work and no guarantee you will get your work in exhibition. It costs a lot to frame your work, and also the amount of hours spent on the work. There was a census for a gallery to be opened in the area, said it was not viable.
Ha ha! Well done Maestro! Yes you're to be commended as again it's my own laziness that's caused the problem.
I made my comment, LINK got the successpage, clicked to return and got an error 29 notice (I think) but saw in my inbox that the comment was made. Went to the page and saw all the other comments were changed. I believe that somehow or other I have broken AP once and for all. Maybe that's a good thing and I should be commended, you tell me.
