"All philosophy is like a tree whose roots are metaphysics, the trunk is physics, and the branches that sprout from the trunk are the sciences"
(Descartes - Philosophical Principles)


Jivko Sedlarski is a Bulgarian-born artist, world-renowned. Sculptor, Painter and Draftsman.His art is complete and plural, both from the point of view of the arguments, both by the variety of materials used by him. His many works are in our midst. They are alive and able to integrate into any environment and be perceived as any natural element. This shows that his work is perfectly in step with the times. There is no better word to understand the essence of that alleged by Vincent Nach: "Art for everyone and everywhere", in absolute harmony with the dictates laid down by the innovative art of the European Council 2007. It is therefore the 'universal art.

Terracina, 10-17 agosto 2019 , "Oltre..." - WOODNS

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.
