Mara Athanasios’ Feminine Universe

Mara Athanasiosby Dan Caragea

Niram Art Website

If  my memory doesn’t fail me, I do not know, in all art history, of an artist in whose genesis did not lay the fertile kernel of another artist, like seed of inspiration and interior aesthetical blossom. The beginning of any creator is partly epigonic, partly a gesture of breaking away from his  teacher.  One cannot renew anything without having experienced the nuisance of “the exercises of admiration” and whoever thinks otherwise is either blind or lying to himself.

Mara Athanasios’ universe of ideas originates from Romeo Niram’s Humanography. She  assumes this openly as two of her photographies are proposed as explicit links to the painter’s work. Apart from these “replicas”, she opens a door in which the feminine mystery, the   accentuated shadows, the lingerie, the hidden face, the intimacy closed in ephemeral gestures, the black and the red, the photographic instance are elements that allow us comparative   reflections.

Musical Timing by Miri Krymolowski

Baruch Elron“There is music in the air, it surrounds us, the world builds itself upon it, every one of us can get what one wants from it.” Edward Elgar

When we look at Baruch Elron’s paintings it feels like getting on a journey. A time travel to distant shores, and even, maybe, a journey toward the depths of the human soul.The present exhibition concentrates on two important subjects in Elron’s works: time and music. Two themes of rather important symbolic value in surrealist art, which most of Elron’s creations belong to. Why then does Elron belong to surrealism? In principle, because he paints, with refined realism and impressive craftsmanship, characters, objects and nature scenes which seem perfectly real, instead the connections and relationships he is setting create a new world, a fantastic, enigmatic one, a world that raises questions about our being here and now.

Homo Urbanus Europeanus

Jean Marc Caracci por Héctor Martínez Sanz

Niram Art Website

The Project “Homo Urbanus Europeanus” (HUE) is the fruit of 3 years of work and has already been exhibited in 31 European capitals. His author, the photographic artist Jean Marc Caracci, has covered the urban places of the European man in the same way that an archeologist searches for, digs up and tries to reconstruct the primitive spaces of the first humanoids. Nevertheless, neither vessels, spear heads nor rupestrian paintings are brought to light – maybe some graffiti and street painting – but spaces which are still present in front of the lens and of the human eye. This regards the “homo sapiens” who lives in geometrical spaces formed by rectilinear lines, parallels and angles which transform themselves into lights and shadows that may afterwards recreate them. This regards us, the Europeans.

Between Eran Eisen and Us

Niram Art Website

by Héctor Martínez Sanz

In 2000, Eran Eisen published his book of poems Between Us, a biographical versified essay on romantic experiences. I read several of these poems in Niram Art magazine (Nº15-16), 9 years after their publication. More than ever, I found precision of the expression and of the use of language. Eran Eisen exemplifies with his poetry the constant battle of the poem with the word, the struggle between emotion and reason. And it is not casual, as one is about to discover.

More lively, More Fleshy, More Dynamic by Adi Cristi

Revista Niram Art Website

Baruch Elron existed so that he could live close to us. Life helped him to realize that the natural order of the things represents a challenge with a view to discovering the opposites, giving birth to the concept called „the natural disorder of the things”. According to Baruch Elron the color could be „read” as if it stood for a declaration of the onlookers’ rights.
