Concepts for the Shingle House are drawn from the American roofed houses, included the request for a large Bay-Window with roof Shingles. The sloping lines of the coverage, form a sloping wall that gives a movement in the facades, and the roof touch the ground. The pillars are extended and bent to the outside to form a set. Noteworthy are the colors gray to the roof type and predominantly white finishes like paint and flooring natural stones. The classic model of Bay-Window requested by the owners, was stylized to create effects internally and followed the coverage. The sloping wall of the living room to the second floor follows inclined to the piano room and creates a double height that allows light to step inside the space through the garret strategically placed in the center of the roof to ensure privacy.

Lynette Yiadom-Boakye’s oil paintings focus on fictional figures that exist outside of specific times and places. In an interview with Nadine Rubin Nathan, Yiadom-Boakye describes her compositions as “suggestions of people…They don’t share our concerns or anxieties. They are somewhere else altogether.” This lack of fixed narrative leaves her work open to the projected imagination of the viewer. Her paintings are rooted in traditional formal considerations such as line, color, and scale, and can be self-reflexive about the medium itself, but the subjects and the way in which the paint is handled is decidedly contemporary. Yiadom- Boakye’s paintings are typically completed in a day to best capture a single moment or stream of consciousness.’ (Continue reading here..)

Alessandro Ripane was born in Genoa (Italy, but he’s lived and worked for a period in Sweden) exactly in the middle of 1989. Due to the lack of wild animals in the city of Genoa, Alessandro bought a lot of books about it. Due to the lack of superheroes in the city of Genoa, Alessandro bought a lot of comics about it. Needless to say, soon became an expert in both categories, even if now draw a little bit of everything, except the aliens, because it is not sure how they are dressed. Now he’s engaged to fight the fall of his hair, to compose sophisticated music of the future, to learn how to draw aliens and watch a lot of movies about monsters and zombies that he has not seen yet.

” What is Objective Reality? Does it exist independent on us, or everything around us is nothing else but the fruit of collective fantasy? When we fall asleep, our subconsciousness starts creating its own reality, free from causal-consequent limits, chaotic, sometimes frightening, but always beautiful in its own special way. In my works I try to set my subconsciousness free when I`m awake, to get free from causes, meanings, and to get back to the primordial Chaos. But without a particle of Order, Chaos won`t be the absolute one. I believe that every person,every living being is the fractal God, in other words, everyone of us is God himself capable of changing the surrounding reality or creating the new one. I mean God not in the religious sense, but rather in mystic-cosmological, God who has embodied into the infinity of similar copies to realize the Reason of all reasons – God himself. Thus to me my works mean something more than just pictures – I consider them avatars of thought-forms and new realities with their deities.” – Viktor Slepushkin
