Featured Artist – Paola Santagostino

I re-met painting at the height of a long career as Psychoanalyst, but it was a much older and earlier love: perhaps the first. As a girl I was practicing in the studios of artists, but then my life took a different path and for many years I worked in Psychosomatic Medicine, discovering the links between mind and body and the roots of physical and mental well-being. In addition to clinical practice I published many books, wrote hundreds of articles and conducted courses, and I still do, but my love for painting continued to re-emerge in other forms, driving me to explore the symbolic meaning of colours and their psycho-physical effects in the environments in which we live (a topic on which I published the book “Il colore in casa” Ed. Feltrinelli). So finally I decided to registered to the Academy of Fine Arts of Brera and graduated in Painting completing my studies.

Featured Artist – Wenkai Li

Wenkai Li was born in Shenzhen, China in 1993. She received her MFA in Photographic and Electronic Media from Maryland Institute College of Art (2018). She is a photographer and video creator. For now, she lives in Manhattan, New York. In my artworks, I want to talk about the relationship between the real world and the ideal world. I think the ideal world is always present form people’s spiritual and dreams are the continuation of life and diffusion of perception. So I always use a dream as an entry point. I want to create my own dreamland, which is fulfilled with my personal emotion and my understanding of time, space, and emotion. For me, idealism is a pursuit based on belief. Idealism must be based on the spiritual level, but it does not exclude material. Then, idealism is closely linked with faith and it always from some places where have belief. With the development of society, people become more and more realism because of some specifical reasons. I still remember a sentence from a famous fiction from China: everything is forced by life. If there are so many terrible things in our life, we have to face it. Because have to we face it so that we become realism. This behavior will make us forget the original dream form heart. I am not saying that realism is not good, I just want to say we live in a real world but we still need to keep something beautiful inner.

Since the focal point of any environment is not the art but the viewer – everything I create begins with filling my mind and heart with the cares of specific people looking for comfort and encouragement.

Featured Artist – Margaret Hyde

I collect and photograph things that most people would step on or walk right by: tiny seashells, dandelions and other weeds and scraps of old metal and broken glass. All of them bear the marks of their journeys: flaws, cracks, bumps and bruises that are a testament to the tide of life. I create miniature sculptures and let the play of natural light, water and gravity transform them into ephemeral talismans. Water, which is essential to all life and to my work, inhabits and flows through the sculptures reflecting its infinite memory of the people, places and things that it has encountered along the way. It is a meditation on what it means to be transformed by life and all the elements of nature. The camera enables me to see rightly “what is essential and (usually) invisible to the eye.” (Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, The Little Prince)
