The choice of the name “Artgender” derives from the consideration for which the brand that identifies a particular company that operates in the sectors of event planning, publishing and communication has never been used; for us art is a real type of human being, that is, who is deeper. Does not exclude anyone but renames a category, composed of very different people within… elsewhere I think, origin and direction; but, united by a single factor: the artistic one. Anyone can be or feel like an artist as long as he is concerned with producing or simply approaching any form of expression. Our identity is necessary, in things, in people, in words, in ways… that teaching contributes to formation ‘individual evolution.

The Sicilian dessert

A #painting of hundreds of kilojoules.
“ The Sicilian #dessert ” by Giorgio De Chirico (oil on canvas, 1919).

☞ Do you know…

‣ Famous #metaphysical painter, the author defined this kind of works “still lifes” or, better, “silent lives” only later. Initially, in fact, he was simply inspired by the love for those colors and textures… #DeChirico had moved to Ferrara a few years earlier, in 1916, and in the new city he had been literally bewitched – as his brother recounts – from the windows of the pastry shops, known then, to adorn itself with all kinds of delicacies.

‣ The metaphysical #painting was an artistic current of the twentieth century that set itself to represent things beyond their real physicality to overcome what they arouse in our senses. Giorgio was the forerunner of this #artistic #current and, immediately after the large sunny squares, typical of the production of the first years, he focused on the objects, carefully painting the details but completely decontextualizing them from their usual location and suspending them in an #atmosphere without space and time.
