Bryan Prillwitz “absolute beauty,” that “oneness of form”


//The stimulation of working in a community with other artists is essential for the purpose of learning and sharing creativity.

I wish for my work to have “absolute beauty,” that “oneness of form” that means that in a tactile sense, memory and physicality are one. I am compelled by that mysterious memory of flesh and material, of strange and forgotten events. I am influenced by Cy Twombly and his paintings that depict the Aegean Sea, the ships sailing to the island of Paphos and the mythical god Dionysus. I think that the flesh and blood in my paintings is of Dionysus, of desire, as well as of a tortured feeling of diminishment, or denial//.

Diana Dudek at Ionion Center for the Arts and Culture presents //A World Behind//

Diana Dudek through her project // A WORLD BEHIND// is leading to the wonderful world of ornamental creation,answering questions as:

//Is the absence of the ornament an indicaror of spiritual strength?

The adornment did, however, survive and took on a new form, – intellectual, poetical and visual … So surface ornament gained in depth.
