Ricardo Nunes’ Places of Disquiet

At the age of 21 Ricardo Nunes explored the historically overwhelming center of  Lisbon for the first time on his own.

The last two years he travelled several times through Portugal, following “old memories of places he might have been” – palces he visited with his parents to spend time with distant relatives.

He is showing us how important feelings are that we connect to pictures which we form out of blurry memories are – “a simultaneity of foreignness and familiarity”.

“The variety of animals and odd creatures I have created over the years began to ask where do we come from, what is our story?”

His work has been described as “a satirical look at the impact urban sprawl has on the environment and surmises, with the aid of scientific slices and core samples, what could happen if we continue to infiltrate and encroach on our rural surroundings.

One thing is clear, the world has changed…“. And so did Josh Keyes’ illustrations.
They once were reminiscent of the diagrammatic representation found in scientific textbook illustrations that often express through a detached and clinical viewpoint of an empirical representation of the natural world.

The apocalyptic taste, the satirical look is not gone, but its simple illustration is replaced by more nature, more landscape, more surrounding.

The happenings now take place in the world we think to know. The protagonists in this illustrations move more freely through the woods, the streets and the sky. The sculpturesqueness and the simplicity change to complexity.

Oil paintings by Christiane Vleugels

Christiane-Vleugels_web7

Each new painting unveils a certain aspect and makes it clear to me that I have chosen the right path in life.

A life in which I have yet to learn and give so much.

This is why none of my paintings carry a certain message or political statement.
The sole purpose of my work is to tempt people to dream.
There is nothing I love more than to move my audience to ecstasy by allowing them a peek into my fantasy.

This is why I gladly invite you all to take a look at my gallery.
‘Welcome to my world!’
