My interest in nature and the landscape forms the inspiration for my paintings. In particular, the fleeting impressions and observations from the car, train or plane, as well as my sketches and photographs can lead to a picture. My daily walks through beautiful Emsland often inspire me to put paint to canvas whereby the exact interpretation of the landscape sometimes disappears during the process. I remain fascinated by the possibility of ending up in a completely different imaginary destination whilst working on a painting. I want to show the essence and the ‘layers’ of a landscape and to ask myself why it is as it is, what may have happened there, or whether this particular landscape is doomed to disappear…I like to leave some abstraction in these processes. So that everyone can create a story of their own.

The United States of America and Japan, once enemies, now allies, are known for different types of scenery. We associate America with grand landscapes and Japan with small temples and gardens, but we can find quiet moments in both. In the troubled times in which we live, it is important to be able to find moments of serenity no matter where we are.

Miki Degni for years works on the concept art-communication as an alternative vehicle to the classic advertising. He works at the same time as art director, graphic designer and artist mixing graphic, photography, painting and design, proposing to the market a unique style that has made his work an unmistakable brand. The idea of painting with wine was born at the request of an Italian winery which asked for a different advertising from the usual. Since then Miki, has organized several exhibitions and happenings with this particular technique.
The series of paintings “Drunk” is made with the technique of wine painting, exclusively with Nero d’avola on the precious Amalfi paper.
Miki started hs career in 1980 when he joined an American multinational company starting to work as a designer and later as a graphic designer. He will remain in that company for ten years, at the same time he also worked as free Lance for various advertising agencies as art director
In 1990 opens Segnidegni in the heart of Milan, and begins to accumulate customers and experiences that will lead me to collaborate with companies such as: Adidas, Alexander Museum, Bourbon, Carrier, municipality of Milan, Citroen, Ericsson , hospital G. Ramazzini, Toshiba, Bocconi University and others. With these companies has the opportunity to express myself in total freedom of expression. But experimentation remains my search engine.
Miki Degni with his message: Support living artists, dead ones don’t need it.

Catherine Hiller’s abstract expressionist work concentrates on powerful, emotional moments in time – human snapshots. Through very energetic and sensual strokes, she expresses her love of paint and colour.
Her works are raw and visceral, the product of instinct rather than intellect. Being very sensitive to her surroundings – colours, sounds, people and most of all music – every cue, whether visual, aural or emotional, has a colour to her and she tries translating it all onto the canvas without the distraction of a thought process. Catherine also particularly enjoy the process, the physicality of painting and hopefully, it transpires in the end result.
French-born, Catherine studied art in Paris before embarking on a successful career in advertising in the UK. After 11 years in the UK, she moved to Australia in 2004 and has been living in Melbourne since. Catherine has had solo and group shows in France, England and Australia and her work is represented in private collections in Europe, North and South America, Asia and Australia.

A tribute to Abruzzo with five photographers. There is no presumption of exhaustiveness, only the different artist sensitivity to distinguish the Images and the perspectives. It is an invitation to discover, explore, and browse our territory rich in contradictions but lavish with emotions.
