Reflections on the 55th Venice Biennale and Brazil at it

Going to the Venice Biennale for the first time is an experience that requires more than to read as much as you can before, speak to people who have been, plan at least five days in Venice, pack comfortable shoes and stylish wear.

Lya Nagado ” Still life” at ICN Gallery: Questioning Mortality by Roy Exley

Lya Nagado: Questioning Mortality “The whole magic of beauty is in its mystery” - Schiller* As soon as I saw Lya Nagado’s beautifully executed, but enigmatic, oil paintings ranged around the gallery wall at ICN, I knew I was in the presence of something rather special.
