Doug Puller

LET’S MEET ARTNESS CONTEMPORARY ART MAGAZINE’ S COVER CONTEST WINNER ! STORM BY DOUG PULLER. @dougpullerartist


Storm relates to the dangers and risks little girls are exposed to. It alludes to the sexual trafficking and other horrors they face in these times. The three girls hang web-like in the middle of chaos and impending danger—fragile and broken—yet still innocent. They appear as if they are in the midst of a storm—as the small Emily Dickenson poem states on the piece:


‘Twas such a little—little boat

That toddled down the bay!

‘Twas such a gallant—gallant sea

That beckoned it away!’

Twas such a greedy, greedy wave

That licked it from the Coast—

Nor ever guessed the stately sails

My little craft was lost!

Francesco Ruspoli

Born in 1958 in Paris from a British mother with a French background and a Belgian father with an Italian background, Ruspoli has presented his work in international art fairs and international galleries increasing worldwide exposure. 

He has been recipient of a number of important international awards and medals such as to mention a few: Eugene Fromentin Award and Gold Medal in France, Masters Award and Honorable Award in USA, Gold Medal in China, Honorary Award of Distinction and Honorable Award in UK, Silver Medal in Italy.

Inspired by his surrounding Ruspoli moved towards a new way of working stimulated by the influences of artists such as Chaim Soutine, Georges Rouault, Henri Matisse, Edward Munch and Egon Schiele. 

Ruspoli art work places the human figures in an abstract environment supported by a vivid use of colours where subtle gradation and dramatic contrast express nuance of emotion and sensuous physicality. 

The work also expresses the direct sensation of lived experience through organic shapes and forms woven from flowing lines and the gaze of the viewer. You are invited to participate in a creative encounter with these elements constructing your own visual languages and meanings.

Ruspoli is internationally awarded with some of his paintings in Museum’s permanent collections.

“Art is about sharing visual ideas. My canvas may not have a front or a back cover but I try with each study, each painting to represent a work to be read rather than stared at. If through my work as an artist I am able to stimulate thoughts and feelings then I have achieved my goal.”

Makotu

What comes after death? This age-old question has been the cornerstone for many artists over the years. Makotu Nakagawa approaches the subject with intimacy, clarity and graphic representation, depicting his father and his body through numerous stages of life, death and the spaces inbetween.

Makotu was born in a rural town in Japan, when his father was 50 years old. For that reason, he grew up feeling the anxiety that father will die in near future. As he grew older, that anxiety grew.

After completing his aesthetics degree at Keio University in Tokyo, he worked in a liquor store and pursued photography in the evenings at Tokyo College of Photography in Yokohama. In order to escape from anxiety of death, he kept taking pictures over ten years. Only his father as a subject.

At the beginning he began taking pictures to escape from reality, but after time, it turned into a means to accept and record the raw reality that was in front of him. Even if it is hopeless and cold like an ice. Because, infinite beauty lives in the sight of reality.

Makotu notes: “I keep bending ear to these pictures, in order to carry this world after myfather passed away. The work is only way for me to listen to the voice of silence.”
