Drawings from Lightning is an artists book, including 30 drawings and 1 photograph made by artists on the theme of lightning "Positive Leaders", a natural phenomenon where the lightning starts from the ground reaching the sky: the artist's metaphor. It is a "solar work". I want to give my interpretation of it in the mean of a spaceship, a capsule that wins the time, the years, getting to 2317! The space-time prospectives are unlimited but the roots are very old, in fact, I have always been fascinated by the prints and drawings that preserve intact their beauty, their mystery; particularly P. P. Rubens "Palazzi di Genova" (Antwerp - 1622) who designed an entire collection of prints of the Palaces of Genova or P. Brueghel who worked on drawings as prints reproductions of the works of H. Bosch. A way to raise awareness and support the work of architects, artists and works by other artists, they were able to project them in other places and times.
In order to thank them and their gestures I created my project involving the artists with whom I share this principle of relationship with the Cosmos,
an exchange that we strengthen through the way we live through our artistic research driven by positive energy, moved by unshakable trust.
Now who wants to be part of the process of carrying out this art work of the future?"

Valentina D'Amaro Landscape Portraits

Transiti Arte Contemporanea

Opening: 20/04/2014 - 31/05/2014

Il 19 aprile 2014 inaugura la nuova stagione di Transiti Arte Contemporanea, spazio dedicato all'arte italiana e internazionale, presso i prestigiosi spazi di Marina di Scarlino in Località Puntone (GR).
www.marinadiscarlino.it
In un periodo compreso tra il 19 Aprile e il 15 Ottobre 2014 si alterneranno mostre e progetti d'Arte Contemporanea che coinvolgeranno noti professionisti, under e over 35, della scena internazionale della pittura, della fotografia, dell'installazione e video. I progetti conquisteranno non solo gli spazi interni dello spazio espositivo ma anche gli spazi pubblici della struttura, coinvolgendo di volta in volta le varie aree della struttura con installazioni site specific.
Transiti Arte Contemporanea al porto di Marina di Scarlino sarà un nuovo luogo di dibattito ed approfondimento delle arti visive coeve, in un contesto di alta ricezione internazionale immerso in una delle perle marittime della Toscana.
Il primo appuntamento sarà dedicato alla pittura placida e lussureggiante di Valentina D'Amaro, artista vincitrice nel 2005 del prestigioso Premio Cairo, che presenterà per l'occasione un ciclo di sette opere recenti del suo percorso creativo dal titolo, "Landscape Portraits".
