Screening Room: Indelible Encounters, art by Anna Di Mezza

Anna Di Mezza creates wonderfully cinematic images with a surrealist twist. Her art is a collage-like arrangement of chance encounters, Old Hollywood lovers and anachronistic retellings of history. These images are surprisingly comforting in its randomness, at the same time strangely sensual. Intriguing gestures, mysterious rocky mountains and whimsical crystals are her reoccurring markers, where elusive truths are waiting to be deciphered. We see her art as screening rooms for life: unpredictable, funny, dramatic and fleeting. They gives us a chance to skip back, in order to find meaning, melody and eternity within moments.

In her own words: “Surrealism, Stanley Kubrick, David Lynch, Boards of Canada and ‘The Twilight Zone’ are amongst the many influences in my work. The paintings invite the viewer to make up the plot in their own mind as if the images were taken from a frame from a surreal film.” (more…)

Dream a new dream: mysterious and poetic art by Paolo Pibi

Art by Paolo Pibi lures the mind into wonderfully enchanting and mysterious lands. His poetic imagery is a mix of the familiar and the enigmatic: a fusion of classically-inspired structures and the indefinitely wild. We especially love the hypnotic floating stone staircases, while the unchartered forests temps us in. Although the landscapes are unpopulated, there’s a human echo, an air of intrigue in the horizon. These are the landscapes that excite us in our sleep, the golden places we remember dreaming. When we awake, they give our goals a new direction and inspire us to give chase to our curiosities.

The introspective atmosphere inspires us to have fresh, clearer eyes to solve big problems, to re-invent, and to discover the edges of impossible.

Nick also works as an architect. His art plugs us into a new rhythm, a break from the clutter and excess of modern architecture. Nick holds a Masters of Architecture from RMIT University.
