A Message from Viviana

I've been painting mandalas from my early age and step by step I discovered the way to my inside.

One of the paths leading to the light is through the understanding of our patterns - if we are brave enough, and have the insight to discover them and transform them with love into positive energy. The other path is an intuitive one with a deep faith in God and in positive energy, nature, which is all the time with us, even in every thought, word, action, prayer or request.

At every step, we have messages leading us to the light. We just have to be present here and now, every moment. When we are able first to follow the voice of the heart, intutition and then use our intellect for the right perception of life, we are on the way to the light-God.

When I paint, my soul becomes one with the colors and forms and together they create the mandala. Each step follows the other, as I enter a meditative state and contemplative union where time doesn't exist and all is One.

At the same time, this is the way that we learn to be present during each moment of our life.

By gazing on the artwork, the viewer is invited to enter the same meditative and spiritual state. Art created in this dual awareness offers direct access to non-dualistic spirit.

The Holy Grail

Art is about meaningfulness - from the least and most everyday to the greatest and most limitless. Art is communication about life. Artists work with their particular sensitivity and visual language into the field of "Holy Grail", meaning meaningfulness. In earlier European art history there was an important distinction between categorizations like feminine and masculine. Where the masculine was linked to action, courage, power, the violent, the boundless and the sublime, while the feminine was attached to the silence, contemplative and beauty. The masculine was associated with the courage to break with rules and norms. While the feminine was connected to the words and beauty and to follow the norms and rules.

The Vision

Art has always explored boundaries and moved across all boundaries, both national cultural and spiritual differences in human experience of freedom, beauty, truth, the good, the righteous. The Art Museum in Frederiksvaerk focuses on the special quality that arises when creating meetings across otherwise separated categorizations such as the naive, sophisticated, figurative-abstract, masculine feminine, traditionally performed and experimental. The art can awaken all sorts of emotions and it can easily the personal with the universal, the everyday with the poetic. passion, curiosity, courage, longing and feeling of life are the elements of art. The core fundamentals of this museum are love, passion, power and innocence.

Viviana was awarded with the "International PRIZE RAFFAELLO" inside the Gnudi Palace in the heart of Bologna. The Prize is for the important celebrities from the world of culture that are worth for their artistic merit. Bologna is one of the most important cities in Italy for the richness of cultural traditions and the vitality of an economy based on trade and agriculture, but also on a particularly developed tertiary sector. In Bologna is one of the oldest universities in Europe, and for quality of life and level of well-being is one of the first places among Italian cities that is also reflected in a culture of food famous all over the world. Raffaello Sanzio (1483-1520) is considered, together with the great Leonardo and Michelangelo, one of the greatest artists of the Italian Renaissance. Raffaello is able to delve into the depths of the human soul, giving his subjects an emotional charge that is transmitted immediately from the canvas to the server. His shop in Rome worked as a real "team" formed not only by young apprentices but also by established artists, so as to be able to carry out several projects simultaneously.

Rome "Awarding of the International PRIZE GIULIO CESARE - Art Emperor" is for artists that are worth for their artistic merit.
