Getting Over the Slump by Maya Mathur

The first time I made pasta I was surrounded by strangers— and fawning over the young Italian chef who was instructing us. We all had our own mixing bowls, eggs and rolling pins. We each contributed our handmade pasta to the large pot of boiling salt water and stared in wonderment as our instructor began … Read moreGetting Over the Slump by Maya Mathur

Giada Rotundo Art

In 2017 , the artist Giada Rotundo obtained her MA from the Art Academy of Brera and in the following years started her artistic career by re-elaborating images from the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. Today she has chosen to not only represent one poetic style and her works do not follow a specific genre, though she continues to express herself with figurative painting. This however, has been a difficult choice and resulted after she matured and reflected upon the fact that it gives the observer a much freer view of her work. If we think that it is the public itself that ‘makes’ the artwork and that it would not exist without it, why shouldn’t we leave them the opportunity to interpret it? Explaining the meaning of the painting would influence their opinion too. Finally, looking at the art of today is like looking at something diverse and complicated, there is so much, sometimes too much. Once there was only one artistic trend and many people would be spontaneously involved. If we think of Art Déco, or even before Art Nuveau, many artists reproduced and spread these artistic styles to other similar fields such as: architecture, textiles and other minor ones. In short, if art is the mirror of what happens we cannot do anything else than reproduce art in the most heterogeneous way.

I wish they could put me in a room with bigger windows so I could see outside, see the sky, see … Read moreExtraterrestrial Rays by Matthew Marroquín

A tingling sensation floods over your skin – as if you’re being watched by something, or someone. You can’t possibly fear the dark, no, it must be something else. You look across the room at … Read moreChildhood Monsters by Matthew Marroquín
