Poetic and Spiritual: The Photography of Noell S. Oszvald

Poetry, meditation and spirituality are often linked. Since the Romantic movement, poetry has been about using an economy of words–condensing meaning only to the essential–to express our profound feelings. Similarly to meditation, this process requires looking within. The photography of the Hungarian artist Noell S. Oszvald is poetic and spirituala visual meditation through images rather than a verbal one through thoughts and words. It seems to be inspired by the the Buddhist practice of focused thought to achieve peace of mind and the cultivation of wisdom.

ROBERT HAGAN modern impressionism

Proudly represented by Gallery France

Robert Hagan is one of Australia's best known and accomplished impressionist painters. His artistic presence is also firmly established in the United Kingdom and America.

Hagan grew up in the small fishing village of Brunswick Heads on the north coast of New South Wales, Australia. It was a quiet, peaceful, one-school, one-general store, little place. His affectionate memories of this lush, languorous, sub-tropical area of Australia have undoubtedly influenced the vivid paintings he now produces of beautiful little beaches, rural life and magical personal moments tinged with nostalgia.

Robert's paintings have been featured in the International Fine Art Collector (1992 and 1994). He was awarded the America's Cup International Artist Gold Medal and the coveted Mystic Yachting Award in 1995.

As well as being a respected art judge, he is a much sought-after demonstrator, whose television series will be soon be available.
