'For Claude Monet to feel in heaven was to paint ‘’en plein air’’, a secret garden where to find repair from the daily groove. The roses, the wistirias, the tulips and the weeping willows hanging on his Japanese-style private garden’s basin of Giverny, were his own paradise and the celeb place of the ’Water lilies’’ series.
For Frida Khalo and her husband Diego Rivera, it wasn’t possible to work in the same place, so they worked in their own private paradise, divided just by a bridge. For Tamara de Lempicka, paradise means put her on airs like a movie star during the vernissage sharing her art with the public.
Every artist has his own personal idea of paradise, whether the pleasure of creation or just a private room, and whatever this paradise is, we want to select as curators the heavenly idea of artists from all over the world, to give life to a new artistic “Eden”, where it’s possible to see the most beautiful contemporary artistic reality represented by 50 selected artists.
Each of the selected artists, will choose one of his artworks of the most significative, with no limits about theme and complying with the freedom of expression.
Contemporary Paradise is a project curated by Francesco Saverio Russo.
