I Go Whimsical On You.



My life "was elevated to another level" when I began to see other dimension that was happening in front of my eyes simultaneously with reality and that I had never paid attention to before.

I was discovering natural mirrors and reflectors, flames, glows, blazes, brilliancy, dazzles, lights, shadows and glares; see that everything is reflected everywhere, my brain was showing me when immersed in great delight.”

It is a very interesting combination trying to live life according to reality and having a whimsical brain who only wants and desires and have this hope of grandeur.

Yes, this capricious being stays in between me and everybody else complicating the interaction with fanciful notions, imaginative narratives, and full of sudden wishes, longings and changes of mind.

It is a little embarrassing once looks like I am the eccentric one here, there is this carefree being occupying my head, hiding behind my eyes, making decisions on impulse, acting aloof and childlike but I will be the one to be blamed and bullied.

It is not that I am a victim or anything, I am not, and am grateful that this brain of mine showed me the surreal world. It is that I just have to supervise it more closely once being whimsical is not that bad, it has three different sides: Fanciful, amusing and erratic…(erratic? Ops!) I promise that for the most part, besides all that involves, whimsical is a compliment.

My pleasure to enhance the story telling with the art of these remarkable artists:

Giorgio Marogna.

Lisa (Vaselenak) Chater.

Mihaela Ioana Atomei.

Carlos Enrique Alvarez Delgado.

Dena (Heller) Ackerman.

Maria Parenteau.

PERFORMED THE LEAD ROLES IN THE WASHINGTON BALLET'S "SWAN LAKE" THURSDAY EVENING AT THE KENNEDY CENTER. IT'S THE FIRST TIME THIS HAS BEEN DONE IN A MAJOR BALLET COMPANY AND CHALLENGES THE IDEA OF WHAT PRINCIPAL ROLES IN CLASSICAL BALLETS SHOULD LOOK LIKE. " LEON HARRIS AT ABC'S WJLA-TV.

JUDITH UNGER’S "UNIQUE, ORIGINAL SCULPTURE & DRAWINGS CELEBRATING STRONG WOMEN" AT THE 2019 VENICE, ITALY BIENNALE:

Enter the elegant dark hued 17th Century Palazzo. Overhead hand hewn wooden beams proudly display the artisan’s initials. Deep shuttered windows open to magnificent views of the canal below. Crowds of visitors enter with wide eyes and gasping smiles. A room full of golden light, golden sculpture and goldenframed drawings. Rich deep connections to Judith’s exhibit everyday. Embraces from all. Women cry in her arms with hope. 3000 visitors in one weekend.

Judith Unger is invited to show 9 Sculpture & 5 Drawings at the Prestigious 2019 Venice, Italy Biennale. 6 months, 600,000 worldwide visitors.

In 2018 she was one of thirty sculptors WORLDWIDE invited to exhibit in the Biennale.

The Venice Biennale is the World's most prestigious Contemporary Art Venue. Established in 1895, it is the oldest contemporary Art Biennale.

In 1948 The Biennale held a major exhibition with the Impressionists, Chagall, Klee, Braque, Delvaux, Ensor, and Magritte, as well as a retrospective of Picasso's work.

 Peggy Guggenheim was invited to exhibit her famous New York collection.

Judith Unger’s "BREAKING FREE" EXHIBIT at the 2019 VENICE BIENNALE

This is MYSTORY, HERSTORY, YOURSTORY.

“My sculpture told my story long before I recognized it myself."

Years ago I sculpted a faceless woman, breaking free, defending herself with threatening claws. Then a crouching angel protecting herself under her wings. I no longer need wings to protect me, to soar.

This is My journey from Oppression to Shining Strength.

I SHINE. A STRONG WOMAN. MY ART SHINES.

I give this gift to others "to give heart" to ENCOURAGE.”

"SHINE"

"Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light not our darkness that most frightens us."

There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so other people will not feel insecure around you.

We are all meant to SHINE. As we let our own light shine, we give others the permission to do the same." excerpt Marianne Williamson

"A CHANGING NARRATIVE OF FEMALE EXISTENCE OVER TIME”

Excerpt “Leda and the Swan” W.B. Yeats.

"A sudden blow: the great wings beating still Above the staggering girl, her thighs caressed by the dark webs, her nape caught in his bill, He holds her helpless breast upon his breast."

My rendering of this myth brings the legend into today’s context. It offers a changing narrative of female existence.

Unlike the story of the ancient Greek Myth of Zeus raping Leda, my Leda defends herself.

Janson’s History of Art”, The Art History Classic since 1962, DID NOT INCLUDE ANY WOMEN ARTISTS UNTIL 1989.

"There is reason to fear that a younger generation of (female) artists lack knowledge of the challenges, the claims for place, and the revolution in attitudes that have actually secured their careers.“

Agnes Gund, Art Collector.

US Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg said her male colleagues sometimes do not hear a woman’s voice. In a 2009 USA Today interview, she said the other justices who were then all men, sometimes ignored her arguments at their private conferences.

My mother, a painter, encouraged me to draw at a young age. We’d ride the train weekly to the Metropolitan Museum of Art in NYC.

I memorized whole rooms of paintings! I remember looking up from my small height overwhelmed in a room overflowing with Monet waterlilies. A whole new world for a small child.

I fell in love with Sculpture at Rhode Island School of Design. Clay felt so right.

The fluid sensuality in my hands translating into my sculpture and drawings.

Both Venice and Vermont magnify the intensity of my work.

I return to my US studio in an explosion of creativity.

I NEED TO SCULPT AND DRAW IT IS ESSENTIAL TO MY EXISTENCE.

Excerpts from Judith Unger’s Venice,Italy Journals:

 “We stood applauding from the ornate golden Royal Box in La Fenice Opera House. A wide private staircase sweeps up to the velvet and golden mirrored opera box overlooking a central view of the magnificent Jewel Box theater below. Mario Brunello, cello in hand conducts the symphony with his bow. Exquisite music in an arena of complete silence. We stand and applaud. I loudly yell “Bravo” I am told his mother sits next to us. She beams at me as I congratulate her son in Italian. Looking at my drawing she replies “You draw like Da Vinci”

~THE DANCE OF SCENTS ~
Dedicated to THE ONE from Dolce and Gabbana






























This painting shows the delicate dance of the scents during the creation of this fragrance. The main characters are the masculine scent of tobacco, cardamom as they coalesce with the fresh feminine scents of oranges and blossom. The dance develops with intensity and great sensuality. 

WAR and PEACE ~

As we understand the Tale of the ... "Tempter Angel on the shoulderv.... Whispering into ones mind and soul, which way to go ??? The two extremes ... the two worlds of conflict .... A person always has the right to choose the direction one goes. Painting shows alleged reality, in which shows, in fact, it is impossible to recognize the difference by ear-the words ... World which sounds like Peace, it is not Possible for Russian people this separable. By choosing the dark side - we lose it all. By choosing the brighter side of Goodness ... we have both the world and peace.

Alpha ... the first letter of the Greek Alphabet, it also means, the beginning, but towards my thoughts: which has the most power in a group of animals or people. So, as I am identifying My Art, as to show

Featured Artist Lucia Ferrara and her recent special project.


By: Carlos Eduardo Feijoo, Founder and Editor of International Lux Magazine.

    International Lux Magazine is pleased to present the recent project of the very featured Italian Artist (also Curator and Blogger) Lucia Ferrara named "NEVER PERFECTThe beauty is subject of love, what is a great project with a sense of social support for women about the violence against women. The special art exhibition was held the June,9,2017 in the MACRO Museum at Rome, Italy.

   In this Article about the recognized Italian and international Artist Lucia Ferrara and her important project "NEVER PERFECT" we share her general concepts, her perceptions, interpretations and expressions of the beauty, the love, the life, the human nature and the human feelings through her special and deep art.

In the next paragraphs we share to our international audience - with the previous authorization of the Artist - the expressions of Lucia Ferrara about her nature as Artist and about her great project "NEVER PERFECT", She says :

   Since 2011 I have gained interest in cosmetic surgery, making it the protagonist of some of the works, some of them presented in New York in 2012, deepening in them the aesthetic theme of the contemporary world.

   In the artistic pathway, Dr. Giulio Basoccu becomes a point of reference, sensitive to Art as to beauty, aware of the importance of psychological therapy that induces change; We establish an immediate tune as it perceives in my creations a personal discomfort and therefore proposes to develop a project between art and surgery.


There are eight works that I decide to paint for "Second Heart Onlus", designed by Giulio Basoccu; They are part of a surgical series called "Never Perfect" and will be screened at the Macro Museum in Rome.

"Never Perfect" collects eight large canvases, (240 cm x 200 cm) made of acrylic on canvas, dated 2017.

   In the overall installation of works, my image becomes the symbol of pain, that of many women and / or men who suffered physical and psychological violence and represented an "invisible illness".

   The "invisible" and "unsustainable" trauma is a deadly trap that causes its victims to diseases that lead to annihilation of themselves, such as Bulimia and Anorexia.

  The title of the artistic series appears deliberately and repeatedly on the canvas, on the body of portrayed figures, as a mark, on nails, on surgical instruments and on syringes in order to highlight the personal "perception of imperfection".

   In this context, the link between self and surgery is evident; The latter may, in many cases, help to "relieve" the psychological relationship of one's inner self and, consequently, the dialogue of the individual with the world.

   I, through the various canvases, pursue a journey of research, using the most painful, but never ruthless images, finding my truth, as Dante runs the path from Hell to Paradise; My personal tragedy turns into a positive one, breaking the emotional block that imprisoned me.

   I break the negation circuit of my image, using it strongly, she so hated, takes shape "for the first time" on an empty canvas, building a new dimension in which rediscovering, turning her gaze to the future.

   Often the victims of violence use disguise, close in silence; In a situation of profound discomfort it interrupts the acceptance of one's self and of its outward appearance, all this does not allow to live a normal life.

   Traumatic pain causes, in some cases, a splitting of personality: the contrast between the negative and the positive of one's being, and in this scenario all life deforms.

   The works are a succession of personal figures that develop my story; From inner hide to the world, to the conscious representation of the pain, showing my identity, the fruit of courage, tenacity, of the character that has allowed me to overcome the painful phase of the violence suffered and repressed, finally succeeding in dialogue with people and things.

   I relate to three characters of different ages reflecting in them: in their becoming, they show the evolution of my existence; Frida Kahlo represents the confrontation between the artist and the suffering, Marilyn Monroe points out the duality between myth and immortal beauty, Madonna (Louise Veronica Ciccone) manifests the transformation of beauty in the chameleonical sense.

   Finally, I "see" and "imagine" as a tree, whose hair is the root of imperfection, in this design I find the ability to observe reality in all perspectives; Surgical syringes become a "therapeutic diadem" and a tool for redesigning "deformed" traits from violence.

   Traveling in my pain, there is no world of perfection, it is only apparent, true revenge is only Love, which can not erase, but it is rejuvenated; My intention is not to make dramatic images of a suffering life, but to express the victory of living positively, destroying the unconscious fears that cross the existential darkness to come to light.

   The set of works, is not a path of "dark" material: the blue color, abandons the expressive surgical symbolism and becomes the sky, in which the figures are animated.

In an artistic world where color is to dominate scenery, my message is and will always be joy and happiness in life, because happiness accompanies the woman when she feels good.

My experience taught me that: "Violence is a material act that the Soul does not recognize."
