“Throw the life net”, by Germain Droogenbroodt, Belgium

Throw the lifenet

Throw the life net * in the abyss of despair

gather at low tide the wreckage the words of olden days

fraction the bread preserve of silence the crumbs

the kindling of dawn

Germain Droogenbroodt From “In the Stream of time, Meditations in the Himalayas”

“Chagall’s magic lantern” by LAWRENCE FERLINGHETTI

LA LANTERNA MAGICA DI CHAGALL

by Lawrence Ferlinghetti (translated by Giada Diano)

 

E Marc Chagall usò il mondo come fosse la sua lanterna magica

e lo fece dondolare sul suo piccolo pennello

volando attraverso i cieli della sua infanzia in Russia

e su Parigi e Chicago e ancora Parigi

capovolgendo ogni cosa mentre passava

dipingendo come avrebbe fatto un bambino

vedendo il mondo per la prima (o la seconda) volta

E tutta la vita santa in un teatro ebreo

con violinisti galleggianti che sfidano la gravità

e suonatori di corno e clown e rabbini

e spose tutte in bianco

tutti a volteggiare insieme

su un grande palcoscenico del mondo

E Notre Dame vista come un mostro

e un angelo con tavolozza e pennello

che vola fuori da un’altra chiesa

E Bella su un ponte

E un rabbino con un limone

E una sposa con due facce con un seno scoperto

E Cristo su una croce

con un asciugamano su una scaletta

Con amanti appesi a un cielo rosso

le teste al rovescio

E un clown che porta un asino

con acrobati scuri che volano attraverso una notte

E un angelo rosso che cade a testa in avanti

E un bue scuoiato capovolto che beve

E un pesce volante che suona un violino

in cima a un orologio a pendolo

E un uomo che partorisce un bambino vivo

e una donna che cavalca un gallo

E spose che illustrano “Resistenza Risurrezione e Liberazione”

E un uccello su un corno di cervo

Un ciccione complessato

Un piccione e una dama che mangiano da un trogolo

Un nudo in un cielo russo di molto tempo fa

con case che sembrano tombe

o viceversa

Un pittore e un viso di donna intrappolati

tra un cane e un lupo

E una slitta con la testa di una donna con i capelli neri

con un uomo che la guida

Con la Bastiglia vista come un gigantesco animale rosso

E un gatto trasformato in una donna

E una ghiandaia adornata con piume di pavone

E una gallina con le uova d’oro sul punto di schiudersi

E una volpe con l’uva che perde la sua coda folta

E un ultimo folle passaggio del Mar Rosso…

 

Riesci quasi a sentire il lamento del violinista

mentre dipinge i suoi paesaggi tragicomici

cosparsi di matrimoni e ebrei erranti

Ed è lo spirito libero con anima da vecchio di Chagall

che dipinge il suo mondo libero

e fugge dalle scale antincendio al quinto piano di un caseggiato senza ascensore

Sulle ali dei suoi pennelli

Adel Gorgy: Retrospective Exhibition at Fairleigh Dickinson University’s Edward Williams Gallery

Retrospective E.

 

Fairleigh Dickinson University’s Edward Williams Gallery presents
“Adel Gorgy – Art About Art…From Da Vinci to Matisse and Warhol, Photographic Works,
Retrospective Exhibition.”
March 30th through May 1st, Opening Reception – Saturday, April 11, from 2-4 pm.
From March 30th through May 1st, Fairleigh Dickinson University’s Edward Williams Gallery presents “Adel Gorgy – Art About Art…From Da Vinci to Matisse and Warhol, Photographic Works, Retrospective Exhibition” a solo exhibition of large scale, abstract photographic work by the acclaimed New York artist, Adel Gorgy. Gorgy’s work has been exhibited in museums and galleries nationally and internationally. This is his first exhibition at the Edward William Gallery.

Gorgy’s photographic art often focuses on familiar works of art by renowned earlier artists. This exhibition offers a rare opportunity to see examples of several bodies of work that span more than 20 years.

Merging the conceptual with the visual into vibrant and stunning images, Gorgy’s work extends the boundaries and redefines the possibilities of photography. In “Art About Art…From Da Vinci to Matisse and Warhol,” Gorgy’s first retrospective exhibition, traces of earlier artworks can be perceived. Works that range in subject matter from ancient to Renaissance to Impressionist and Modern Art present Gorgy’s distinctive style and vision. Gorgy reconstructs, recontextualizes and recomposes what he sees into complex, intricately detailed photographs rich with imagery and meaning. This work presents a completely new vision that has not been done or seen before. It transcends the limitations of realism, asks the viewer to experience art with new eyes, and gives new depth and dimension to familiar works. Gorgy’s abstractions are surprising, thought-provoking and beautiful. Several of the works are printed on silver metallic medium, which gives an incredible depth of tone and a rich surface texture.

Photographic artworks from these series have been exhibited in Manhattan, London, Italy, France, Singapore and Seoul, Korea. Now, New Jersey audiences will have the opportunity to see them locally. Adel Gorgy’s artwork has been the subject of five previous solo exhibitions. It has been included in numerous group shows, published widely in books and magazines, and is the subject of the 2014 book, “Adel Gorgy, Photographic Works.”

The Edward Williams Gallery, under the directorship of Diana Soorikian, at Fairleigh Dickinson’s Petrocelli College presents exhibitions of important local and regional contemporary artists.
