"If you want a picture, go to the photographer"

"If you want a picture, go to the photographer" - WOODNS

Woodns was never a real portrait, despite having spent several days in that type of activity and having sold several. Many times during the summer, would stand with the stand and an empty chair in the most crowded by tourists and there, for little money, engages in the portrait. Observation, those faces paintings lacked most of the time the special characteristic that must possess this type of framework, that is, almost the perfection of similarity.
Sometimes been criticized for that deficiency, and then defended himself saying, "If you want a picture, go to the photographer." In some ways you could not even agree with him, because in fact the artist sees you in his own way, perhaps, is capable of capturing aspects and expressions that ordinary mortals escape. This is exactly what was said on the day of his funeral. The parish priest, Don Renato, who had been by his portrait, he based his homily on this very topic. Stressing that his effigy, at first glance, not perfectly modeled on its features, but added that he realized after a more detailed analysis, noting the stretch of the eye, that the design was very similar, or even more. Portrayed perfectly what is deepest, hidden traits of his soul. The perfect identikit of what we, with our daily thousand masks, we try to hide. And that is our true essence

In contrast art experts judge his portraits, among all the works he has left us, the most sublime.

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.
