A little bit about my process:


I have no preconceived notion, idea, or forethought that goes into creating a piece of art. I approach my materials with an open mind. One mark informs the next until I am satisfied and feel that the piece is complete. I do not censor myself. I work with the stream of consciousness. All the marks and words are raw from the pen to the paper. Sometimes they are nonsensical and other times they are meant as messages from a Higher Power to me. I take no credit for the work produced, I feel I am a medium between the Great Spirit and the materials I'm using.

Artistic Influences how their work inspires me:


I have many influences. In fact my greatest influences are childrens' art, outsider art and art brute. I appreciate the untrained hand and the simplicity of mark making that the outsider artist has. The American Visionary Art Museum in Baltimore, MD is a place I had visited frequently when I was in art school and I was amazed at the incredible pieces of art made by untrained artists.  Other artists that have influence me are Jean Dubuffet, Paul Klee, Cy Twombly, Antonio Tapies, Friedensreich Huntertwasser, Josef Bueys, Marcel Duchamp, Antonio Gaudi, and the artists of the Expressionist school. These artists influence me in different ways but strong vibrant colors, erratic mark making, the use of unusual materials, the concept of ready-mades, and childlike forms are what Im drawn to aesthetically. Metaphysically Im drawn to "the spirit" in all cultures, transcending the time-space continuum, life after death, and the space between spaces.

Event not to be missed! Nadia Turella and Giovanna Sacchetti, two contemporary artists whose works are inspired by various themes imbued with present are on display. Arguments and questions, of a moral and current nature that although they do not want, concern us and touch us closely in this time and in our journey. Nadia, guides us and leads us with the significant and beautiful works, through antithetical worlds. Lands in which elements like, friendship and bullying, the right to childhood and violence against women and children, the discriminating color of the skin and the beauty of the colors of mother nature and its respect are contrasted. Giovanna with her enchanting works accompanies us and guides us in her enchanted world, made up of trees and figures, defined by her as "angelic" that speak of emotions, loneliness, anger and protest against all forms of violence. His figurative missive urges us to understand that we are all one and we must live in harmony with everything, respecting other beings. So the message of both enclosed in the title of the exhibition is "Beyond" as a wish ... Because there is always hope that everything will improve. F.B.W.
