Exhibitors: Rebeca Capriles-Heller, Hannelore Heider, Carmen Lins, Gianfranco Massarenti, Herbert Reumann, Davide Sigillò and Cristina Stefanoni.

Rebeca Capriles-Heller is part of an old Venezuelan family. He has been drawing with pencil and charcoal since he was 14 years old. In London, he took part in various courses, including pastel and charcoal nude painting. Since 2008, she has been a student of Sabine Fleischmann, who initiated her into oil painting; in 2018, he painted in acrylic under the direction of Gaby Dotter. His painting is influenced by various life experiences, and tackles busy and demanding themes such as poverty, famine, class differences, diseases, popular uprisings. The different life experiences, with related stories and memories, in major European cities such as Madrid, London, Brussels, Paris, Copenhagen and in different centers of Germany also play a fundamental role.

The artist Hannelore Heider believes that ancient and contemporary cultural signs and symbols contain secrets that we also find in dreams. Driven by imagination and ingenuity, she expresses it figuratively with ever new content and meaning contexts. Thereby the complicated and the confused are reduced in favor of the beautiful, the simple human. With his art, Hannelore transforms symbols and signs into different cultures and cultural eras, draws inspiration from cave paintings, creates varied figures and is represented in ever new ways. Its basic theme, “the dream”, is expressed in the swinging figures and structures. His paintings mature in a long process, where they overlap different techniques and thus gain depth and expressiveness.

The goal of Carmen Lins’ painting is a special depth of color thanks to her special lime-pastel technique. In the stream of moods of light and time, it is also about incorporating the personal mood; with the dynamics of the color transitions, an expressive painting emerges that adheres to the abstraction and yet does not lack figurative recognition. Instead, the artist in the portraits tries to achieve expressive aesthetic representations through the free use of colors, leaving a lot of room for subjective interpretation. Carmen Lins took landscape courses with the world-famous Christian Ludwig Attersee and elaborated on his portrait techniques with Elke Krystufek. It is part of the Association of Visual Artists in Vorarlberg (Austria).

Gianfranco Massarenti, after an artistic education with teachers at the highest level (Armando Santi, Giorgio Del Bono, Pippo Pozzi and Placido Castaldi) continued his artistic activity with a certain discontinuity, changing ups and downs. The real turning point dates back to 2007, when he met the Pictor Academy in Turin, and thanks to it he sought out Aldo Antonietti, Laura Frus and Giuseppe Musolino, artists and teachers who made him passionate about trompe l’oeil painting and technique. for airbrushing. With all the enthusiasm given by having found a valid and suitably expressive channel for the manifestation of his undoubted talent, Gianfranco Massarenti has realized a dream by opening his own studio in the famous Ricetto di Candelo (BI).

For Herbert Reumann, the interplay between geometry and color represents the pure essence of image representation. These are works with a strong geometric vein that can recall the movement of neoplasticism, but with definitely more pop accents, or portraits where the motif is composed / broken down by simple solids (cubes or pyramids) and primary colors. Yes, color is a fundamental theme of Reumann: it uses only pure shades of black, white, gray, blue, yellow, and red, in short, the trio of primary choices, the two “non-colors,” and the sum of the latter. When one looks at his paintings, it seems to cross a kind of “Stargate” that throws itself into a parallel universe where simple entities compose new amazing realities.

The love for the city of Florence, where Davide Sigillò was born and raised, as well as Tuscany with its coasts and landscapes, the sky, the places and the people of the world that he inhabited, pushed him in the last period to pay tribute to them by bringing him back to a more figurative and romantic painting than the informal that characterized him in the past. He has often changed style, sometimes returning to use and mixed brush and palette knife, mixed techniques and new colors, and refined a research that is an essential element in making him expressive. Of a reserved nature, the artist lives in his beloved Florence and divides between working in medicine and memory in his studio characterized by a fertile vein of image in continuous metamorphosis.

Cristina Stefanoni was born in Lecco and lives in Monza with her family. She has always loved to draw, a passion transferred to her by her father – architect and art collector – and by her uncle, a painter, through whom she was able to learn and appreciate works and artists from the main currents of the 70s / 80 ‘ erne. After graduating and a career as an English teacher, she joined the student group of painter Francesca Guffanti from Monza in 2010, where she approached the technique of oil and acrylic painting. He subsequently participates in various group exhibitions and competitions in Monza and the surrounding area. From 2012, he joined the Circle of Friends of the Art of Villasanta (MB). Cristina Stefanonis is a painting with an iconic touch, where reality and imagination merge in hanging moments.

The exhibition will be open until June 30 in the ARTtime Gallery in Vicolo Pulesi 6 a, Udine at the following times: Monday from 15:30 to 19, from Tuesday to Saturday from 9 to 12:30 and from 15:30 to 19. Free admission .
