HODGSON CRAIG

Jeni Hodgson Craig (?). English painter.
Another artist follower of that hyper-realistic current not without old pop influences. There are so many in America, maybe too many. Her are sometimes pleasant images and sometimes not. It remains that they add nothing, really nothing, to the role and function of contemporary art in our life, even when they are as pleasing as this image.

FERRI

Roberto Ferri (1978-). Italian painter.
Ferri can evoke the glories of Baroque painting because he has all the capacity to do. We should be grateful to him because, together with other artists, he had the courage to go against the current. I think it is very well to interpret the Myth, a little less well is to use symbols that bring us back to the end of the XVIII century or equally intrepid or esoteric symbols of surreal (not surrealist!) matrix. I think I understand that Ferri has recently decided to do without it and I am pleased. If I had to give him advice I would suggest clearing his palette, we have enough of dark tones and indistinct backgrounds, let more light penetrate into his compositions! In other words, being less theatrical (grandiose vice of Baroque art) and more realistic, sanguine, vital, and solar.There is nothing to say that Ferri is a great Italian artist and I hope that he goes much further than the results achieved. 

FRICK

GUSEV

Vladimir Gusev (1957-). Russian painter.
I continue to publish works of art like this, careless of all the rest; it is not true because I keep on watching what is happening in the art world, but I refuse to publicize what I often consider as rubbish. So then works like this one have any value? Not always, sometimes yes sometimes not. The fact remains that such works, like these flowers, can (I wrote they can) rejoice our life. Of course most of the time they do not ask questions, they do not help us to solve the terrible confusion in which we live constantly, but in spite of everything they can help us at the same moment in which they give us some joy. Everything here, there is nothing else, they do not intend to deceive anyone as instead happens too often in contemporary art managed, as always, by scammers.
