Starting from 1994 begins the period of "Bright Chromaticism" with the "Conversation" cycle that gives rise to the second personal show exhibited in Rome (2000), Pescara (2007) and Teramo (2007/08). From the interest to color and informal experience of the path "Crossing the Time" comes the "Cosmic Games", addressing the theme of energy in Macrocosm and Microcosms, focusing on the relationships between these two dimensions and high lighting many conceptual ideas.

Was born Rivolta d’Adda, Cremona.

She perfected her art after attending various courses on nudes in Bergamo and sculpture at the Accademia di Brera Milan.

She made her debut in the world of art in 1956.

Her art was characterised by expressionist paintings and satirical spirit.

There after her creativity used different forms and research to express itself, wood, bronze, terracotta sculptures as well as jewels until to her art became essential.

The 1990’s represent a continuation of her continual search.

Both her painting and sculptures took a sharp change in direction towards increasingly more essential forms with ever more complex research into materials and style.

The art critic prof. Giorgio Segato, writes about her: "FaustaDossi feels much the materials and the color, love the sculpture and painting, but with both sets an essentially tactile relationship, in molded or in engraving, and in collage and decollage. Tactility is one of the dominant characters of his work: able to act on the plastic mass by making movable parts on pins, so as to modify the volumes, the prospects, the play of light on the surfaces, often with the constituent parts treated in different ways, the polished or brunite the movable part, and the skinned fixed one, so as to highlight the articulation and the eventuality of a rotation that opens spaces, "thresholds".

Her compositions feature dense colours on heavy paper which FaustaDossi creates with her own hands. Her work has been displayed in national and international exhibitions in Spain, France, Austria, Germany, Belgium and U.S.A.

With QAGI and MAQ, she has participated in important events in Milan, St. Petersburg and Moscow.

Diana Coatu, Romania

Member MAQ

 

Diana Coatu is a digital artist from Sibiu, Romania. Diana is a licensed physician (M.D) and has been practicing allopathic medicine for the past 26 years. Her artistic interests were always pronounced and found their expression in 2015 when she started experimenting with the fractal software JWildfire. The newly discovered artistic freedom and endless possibilities fascinated her!

Her interest in natural sciences, especially for quantic physics, accompanied her all her life and she always tries to keep informed about the latest discoveries in the field. She has a holistic view on life and is very interested in spiritual enlightenment.

As an individual, Diana is a very caring, sensitive, empathetic and discrete person, always trying to care for her family and friends.

In the search for maximum artistic expression, she likes to experiment with different techniques and methods such as mixed media.

So far, she has participated in four collective exhibitions in Florence, Italy and won the Recognition Prize of the Palm Art Award in 2017.

The essence of her artistic vision reads as follows: the artist dreams in the heart of the endlessness.

The infinite releases itself from the constraints of time releasing light.

A fresh new world is shaping up, erupting from the virtual and imposing a brand new reality on the viewer.

Her artworks reveal the holo-fractographic nature of the universe.

The journey to other dimensions, the archetypes, the ethereal, the quantic dimensions, the mythological and the oneiric frequently materialize, having a profound spiritual meaning.

The intense connection, which exists between everything and everyone most often breaks out in full force; at other times it makes its way in a subtle, almost imperceptible fashion, transposing the beholder to a fascinating realm, whilst seducing him. That is where the mirrors of being, reunite the primordial beauty with the joy of being one.

The digital environment provides her with the ideal framework for creating such sceneries, where the quality of light and the purity of color transpose the viewer. She invites you to get carried to other dimensions, in which dreams and visions get intertwined in the realm of visual magic.

The artist in the photo was born in Bagheria (Palermo) in 1952-the city Guttuso.

Since he was a boy, he cultivated a great passion for drawing and painting, besides a large interest in astronomy.

Sicilian, he loves his land with a strong critical spirit, and his land, he receives a gift their colours are reflected in the first landscape works.

The attractiveness for "flowers" for "light" then would you describe your area of maturity.

Life leads him to other jobs, a degree in statistics, business consultant for many years .. but never forget about their passion, which come to the surface in 2016 with a return to painting and artistic photographic studies of "the light"and " flowers".

Cut a part of his time to devote himself to art and in conjunction with one another palermitan artist, Rosario intends to create "art pole" with mobile exhibitions for the city of Palermo.

He comes to the artistic forms of research without abandoning traditional painting, in fact he doesn't believe in fences: "art has no expressive boundaries ..." Rosario - "multidimensional" artist who considers art as a "motor sensations and "emotions" and convinced of the strong ties between the different forms of expression and science, in particular astronomy, which resumes training with great interest and love ...

Its catalog includes approximately 120 paintings and 30 "Art.picture."

 

Lorenzo Mignani, Italy

Member MAQ

He was born in Bologna in 1962, he began to devote himself to art since 1977, starting to follow different artists of national importance.

In 1980 I started to exhibit in group exhibitions, and in 1983 he held his first solo exhibition.

Along with this medical operation.

His interested in Eastern thought and philosophy, especially Zen and Taoism, ecology of mind and ecosystems.

His work is represented in 2 different series: as a rule, large canvases, which are informal lyrical expressionism, and "sketches" small works on wooden table, painted on all sides.

Both series have a strong reliefs for the items on the canvas.

Many of his works: in addition to sight they are feeling (relief) and spirits (newly added items are often riddled with entities).

These paintings are designed to make the viewer think and stimulate introspection.

It exhibited at many collective and personal exhibitions throughout Italy and various works are part of important private collections.

 

Alessandro Testa, Italy

Member MAQ

Alessandro Testa was born in the forties in Trevi, in the province of Perugia.

The meeting with painting takes place in 2005.

He began to paint as self-taught, after a long figurative sculpturto experience. Starting from the seventies, he experimented with the sculpture of wood. It works different essences: the apple tree, the lime tree, the wtonut tree. But among tol it prefers the olive wood from which bas-reliefs emerge from the explicitly rurto taste, like the scenes of the trades of his Umbrian land.

The approach to copper processing dates back to 2000. Metto with which it molds receptacles of daily use and archaic figures with a sacrto aura.

Therefore painting represents a chtolenge for the artist. His hands want to deto with the density and the color surface. The colors that are spread on the canvases are for Toessandro Testa,

musicto instruments that evoke emotionto vibrations.

The artist declares: "Not knowing how to paint, what I'm looking for is just creating to launch a message ". Communication is therefore placed at the center of his pictorito experience, which evokes stylistictoly, informto art, without ever referring explicitly to a particular artist.

The first works, those until 2010, are crossed from an evident vein of controversy that unites him to graffiti screamed by writers. He launches written on the canvas, emerge words of protest among the colors, but nothing is random: everything ditoogues within the frame, from which a cry toways comes out.

A scream that is often the chromatic message of protest of a rebellious sensibility, deeply wounded by the injustices of contemporaneity.

Words disappear from the canvas starting in 2014.

In the works of the last years, Testa abandons the spelling.

But his works are never silent.

In fact, his soul keeps moving, speak and vibrate between the colors of the paintings, with indomitable harmony.

 

Renato Lipari, Italy

Member MAQ

Renato Lipari was born in Milan in 1952. His artistic career starts with the experimentation of different styles and techniques, that confirm his innate creativity and natural need for research. In the early 2000s, after he left the previous production, his language moves towards a rigorous survey of the surface using the shredded euro, at first defining a conceptuality of complaint, then moving towards an “analytical” side. He exhibited in solo and group exhibitions and in the most qualified contemporary art fairs. Of himthey wrote among others: Carmen De Stasio, Mimmo Di Benedetto, Francesco Gallo, Marina Giordano, Giovanna Grossato, Gianfranco Labrosciano, Loredana Rea, Marcello Palminteri, Gabriele Perretta and Giuseppe Viviano.

He lives and works in Palermo, Italy.

 

Critical text taken from the presentation of Giuseppe Viviano from the Renato Lipari ContemporaneaMente catalog, April 2018:

“Pandering an inhrent inclination to observation, attention to detail, to research, the artist conducts, drawing on the crowded sphere of common things, original wide-ranging experimentations through the use and manipulationof different materials, raw or processed sometimes recovered and reinserted in the artistic context, resounding with clear echoes on the linguistic-expressive stylistic and formal plan glass , flakes of brass, sand wood, cotton and printed canvas, wire mesh, rusted iron wire and barbed wire, components of the first alphabeth, which go alongside and sometimes overlap to the proper pictorial intervention, drips and red blood stains, handprints, geometries at the border of monochrome backgrounds and sometimes written ironic slogan that speack of a socially engaged art. Lipari’s quest lands on the threshold of the second millennium, to a new aesthetics, aided by the fortuitous rediscovery of a common and at the same time precious material, fruit of labor and source of contrast, symbol of power and greed, which will mark a decisive turning point, in this artistic career, euro banknotes withdrawn from the market and reduced into thin filaments. The first works in which shredded euro appear are from , this period, yet with contaminations of elements functional to the representation of a conceptuality of denounce. The artist focuses then on an investigation between the matter (the new!) and the surface, and, put aside the brushes, acrilics and other elements, develops a new language which defines his style, this being based upon the exclusive use of paper shredding with a more accentuated tendency to conceptuality and abstraction. The surface of the canvas, now appears entiraly covered by shredded euro fragments on successive stratifications that are articulated in a thick and vibrating plot of symbols in which a close look can see tiny writings, traces of holograms and filigree. A monochromatic weaving from which more or less rigorous geometries, symbols, abstract backgrounds, essential shapes and rarely figurations, emerge from chromatic contrast. Thew result is a new conception of the working space, new timings and gestures. The creative act moves from an idea of the artist which prefigures the outcome and geverns its execution but has also a certain unpredict ability due to the specificity of the technique and the materials. “

My name is Anthony Wayne Ustazewski, I am 68, married to Pamela, my very supportive wife, and we presently live in southwestern Pennsylvania in the small historical hamlet of Ligonier. In the foothills of the Allegheny Mountains my wife and I live a secluded lifestyle, retired except for painting which I have done since my early 20's.

    My grandfather was from Krakow Poland. Because of the American dust bowl my grandfathers horse farm in Oklahoma had to be moved to Pennsylvania where my cowboy father became a coal miner to support his large family. Born in 1950 with two older brothers, I grew up poor in a coal mining town called Herminie #2, where art was always a part of me, drawing on cars or T-shirts and sometimes advertising signs.

    Electronics was my first degree because of my interest in how things worked. Drafted to Vietnam in 1970, one week after graduation sent me on a different coarse by celebrating life and following my first love of art and earning a fine art degree in painting after my army experience.

    In my second year of college I took a course called Phenomenology which would forever change my ideas in art. After years of experiments, as I called them, I became able to tame the chaos of a world I imagined possible. I became fascinated with black holes, the very large and the very small worlds, other dimensions, and the limits of the physical senses were all questions I pondered.

    My paintings have always been an extension of my experiences and readings in science and philosophy, a challenge to represent conditions we have never seen. Not to just paint chaos or an unlimited number of conditions, but to do it with a deep sense of painting, as in fine art painting.

    I have invented something called Phenomenism. With limited space I can say that I work with a new set of axioms as elements in my paintings. The rules I work under allow me to achieve compositions I can't produce in any other way. There are specific rules to create Phenomenism. They tend towards purity, almost like a check system in math. The compositions prove themselves by their own existence. I believe these efforts will eventually lead me to artistic breakthroughs in compositions not reachable in any other way. In the last 5 years I began to refer to Phenomenism as quantum for I felt it was the next step to a practical application of my artistic experiments.

     I recently discovered MAQ and was excited to know there were others pursuing similar objectives in combining science with art. I will mention here that I did teach college art history and studio classes for a 15 year period, giving me an incredible opportunity to teach. A few months after moving to my present address my new awkward address was changed by the post office to 214 Galaxy Lane, Ligonier, Pennsylvania, a perfect address for a quantum painter.
