From My Desk... I keep hoping for better times, less worries, more health, less crime less violence,

less hunger, less abuse, and I say less because we could hope for none at all, but that is a whole other story. I have felt loss, and dispair, I even felt no hope at all, but life always shows me a brighter day, and my Faith takes over changing it all. I am an optimistic and a believer that everything will be better, and that everyone will lend a hand, or help and even care. I hope... to see a better world. One thing I got to taste, eternal undying love. And I am thankful for that. We hope you enjoy this issue we have tons of creativity, talent, success and endless beauty. Thanks to all the beautiful people that collaborate with us. Our special thanks to Jai Gallery Curator and Director Coralie for the interview with Gabriel Wickbold, our cover. Our Europe Art Editor our extra talented Artist Alchimist, Suzana Jardim, bringing us the Magical Dominique Lacomte, and I also would like to thank Edmundo Cavalcanti and congratulate him for the passion, and devotion to the Art, and his first Expo.

A Palavra e o Poeta

Misty

Autor: Nilton Bustamante

sem os sustos, sem os medos, sem explicações na ponta da língua, sem bater cartão do tudo igual, apenas você no meu colo, mas não quero boneco de ventríloquo, quero sua libertação para você usar sua própria voz, fazer de sua língua o que bem quiser, beijo ou malcriação, tudo o que desejar... A anarquia nesses momentos cabe tão bem, sem saber o que virá do outro, dois desiguais, dois estrangeiros que se encontram e deixam a natureza conduzir a orquestra de nós dois... Você sabe bem o que é isso, não é mesmo, meu bem?

Agora a pouco me deixei levar por algo que a madrugada oferece, mas não mostra, não deixa nas prateleiras, nem nas gavetas... Mas, preciso de um trago, e o meu trago é música, Sarah Vaughan deslizando “Misty” pelos meus cantos. Já que estou descalço, quero dançar, no meio da sala, pode ser nas esquinas, pode ser qualquer lugar, no banheiro, no jardim, desde que haja noite, desde que seu rosto encoste ao meu. Ah, Ah, meu amor, o mundo, o nosso mundo, precisa estar descalço é estar nu, é entrega, é intervalo, mesmo desses dias madrugadas, ouvir “Misty” é liberdade, é ser índio, é sentir os sentidos toe esperar amanhecer sem pijamas, apenas descando a pele e um pouco mais. calços e bêbados de amor... Sarah Vaughan: “Misty” Você e eu, nesse imenso e inconfundível silêncio, essa nebulosidade de tanto a dizer, e não querer falar nada, tocar apenas com os olhos o que se vai por outros esconderijos, por outras miragens, outras vertigens... Você e eu, e nossa maneira de ser, fazer manhas, raspando minha barba por fazer em seus seios que não me deixam, não me deixam em paz... Esses encontros madrugadas, são para saltar felicidade de altos trampolins, é perigo constante, é frio percorrendo todos os caminhos, e mesmo assim esse gosto de bis, esse gosto de querer mais e um tanto mais, mais e mais, deitar no tapete com os pés no sofá, olhar para o teto, contar carneirinhos, rir à toa, tal é essa coisa, esse modo de tecer momentos e colocar nas paredes, pra ficar grude, pra ficar por perto, e depois lembrar... Ahã, essa canção... Acho que fiquei assim, zonzo, rodando, vendo você ir e voltar, roda-coração, esse balanço, esse trapézio, esse descuido, essa vontade de beijar baixinho, vendo filmes-cobertores avançando pelas claridades das manhãs,


Em todo lugar. Vera Fonseca O mundo da gente, Com raízes diversas, Mistura de tantas raças, Traços e pele diferentes, Falando outras línguas, Somos de lados opostos, Com tanto em comum, Dúvidas e esperanças, Nutrem estas vontades, De ver na terra a paz, A soberania soberba, Riscada definitivamente, Derrubando as fronteiras, Eliminando o sofrer, Criada por tiranos, Que usam o poder, Para atos indigestos, Como se neste processo, Fossem seres especiais... É a diversão no paraíso, A dança dos tolos, Querendo demais, O que é de todos, E o que é de ninguém, Vida que passa lenta, Morte rápida e violenta, Não importam os rótulos, Ninguém escapa disto, Há um destino traçado, Desviar das más ações, Fazer do tempo instrumento, Para ter a liberdade de escolha, Compor o caminho sem culpas, Pois, ao plantar e disseminar o bem, Estaremos sincronizados com todos... Então, vamos dar as mãos, Este mundo está muito carente, E a emoção de doar, está em todos, Basta entender que somos iguais, Encarar nos olhos do próximo, Para ver que podemos ser a luz, Deste maravilhoso mundo... Vera Fonseca. Poema do livro PASSAGEIRA Publicado no https://www.createspace.com/4671925

“Rosas para uma dama” Edmundo Cavalcanti

Fiz-te estas duas rosas Podem não serem tão formosos. Mas fiz pensando em ti. Minhas mãos ficavam tentando cores Amarela como a primavera Branca que me traz muita paz Vermelha como minha paixão. Rosa, como um sonho suave, sensação prazerosa. Verde, medo de perder-te. Fui levado inconsciente para o azul. Tranquilidade, serenidade e harmonia. Tudo que eu queria e nem sabia. Te rosto, nunca vi, mas posso imaginar. Podes não acreditar Estou a te amar. Sei que rosas têm espinhos Mas, fazem parte de nosso caminho. Mas temos que segura-las com jeitinho Evitando os espinhos. São suas, receba e cuide delas com muito carinho. Rosas iguais a estas nunca receberas, são únicas. Especiais, e te trarão muita paz.

“Jesus Christ Superstar,” the global phenomenon that has wowed audiences for over 40 years, is reimagined for the 21st century as an arena-rock spectacular. The biggest ever North American arena tour of Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber’s groundbreaking rock musical is coming to Orlando at the Amway Center on Saturday, June 14 with an extraordinary cast of rock, pop and R&B superstars.

2013. The Times said, “The show gets the right balance between the spectacular, the jokey and the sincere. The performances from the well-choreographed supporting cast are fine throughout. Honestly, it’s enough to give rock opera a good name.” The Evening Chronicle exclaimed, “the extravagance of the production, a flamboyant spectacle of acrobatics, dramatic flames and provocative pole dancing,” and Liverpool Daily Post claimed, “Restored to its rock roots, the star-studded second coming of Jesus Christ Superstar is big, brash and bold…” and the Manchester Evening News stated, “from the very opening strains the pounding music, the huge and sophisticated video backdrops and pulsating energy from a talented ensemble cast make this a true spectacle.”

Tickets go on sale Friday, April 11 at 10 a.m. through Ticketmaster.com, by calling 800.745.3000 and at the Amway Center box office.

Orlando Philharmonic’s Stages Verdi’s La Traviata On May 9 & 11, the Orlando Philharmonic Orchestra will produce Verdi’s romantic opera, La Traviata, at Bob Carr Performing Arts Centre (401 W. Livingston Street, Orlando). Performances will be Friday, May 9 at 8 p.m. and Mother’s Day, Sunday, May 11 at 2 p.m. Tickets are $20-$82, available at 407-770-0071 or visit OrlandoPhil.org. Set in the ornate salons of 19th century Paris, La Traviata (“The Fallen Woman”) tells the story of Violetta, a famed courtesan who enjoys her carefree life, but longs for passion. She falls deeply in love with a young respectable nobleman, but their affair is cut short by his family’s disapproval and her frail health. Most will recognize the plot of La Traviata from its adaptation for Baz Luhrmann’s 2001 Australian-American jukebox musical Moulin Rouge! and J. F. Lawton’s classic 1990 movie Pretty Woman, starring Richard Gere and Julia Roberts, also based on Alexandre Dumas’ 1848 novel The Lady of the Camellias.


Conducted by Orlando Philharmonic Music Director Christopher Wilkins and staged by Frank McClain, the orchestra’s production will star Cuban American soprano Elizabeth Caballero as Violetta. Caballero has been hailed as one of the leading sopranos on the scene today. Her recent performances of Violetta received raves including The Daily Page declaring, “With a lovely voice, she has a compelling sense of drama. As she puts the role through its paces, she creates a Violetta of passion and vulnerability, able to move from a conflicted sense of herself, through cruel sacrifices, to profound commitments. Even before her death scene, this Violetta is really heart-wrenching. Tenor Brian Jagde, a force in his own right, will perform the role of Alfredo, while the imposing baritone Stephen Powell takes the role of Alfredo’s father, Giorgio. Other cast members include Samantha Barnes Daniel (“Flora”), Gabriel Preisser (“Baron Douphol”), Andrew Gray (“Marchese d’Obigny”), Thomas Potter (“Dottore Grenvil”) and María Laetitia (“Annina”).

and her despair at the thought of losing all that she loves. I know this is going to be an opera that everyone will enjoy.” The Philharmonic’s production will be fully staged with sets and costumes and the orchestra positioned on stage as part of the production. The opera will be sung in Italian, with English translations projected above the stage. *** Now in its 21st season, the Orlando Philharmonic is Central Florida’s resident professional orchestra, comprised of talented musicians recruited from around the world. The Philharmonic inspires audiences with over 125 musical experiences annually, ranging from classical and chamber music concerts to pops performances, staged opera productions, outdoor concerts and education programs for all ages.

The orchestra has produced opera since the Orlando Opera closed its doors in 2009. Committed to building a sustainable future for classical music, the Philharmonic currently has a budget of $3.6 million, holds an endowment of $4 million, and has maintained a balanced budget every year of its existence.

Orlando Magic Launches Google Glass Technology In-Game to Enhance Fan Experience Magic remains focused on customer experience and technology To further engage and enhance the fan experience, the Orlando Magic is unveiling Google Glass technology for the Magic’s matchup with the Brooklyn Nets on Wednesday, April 9. The Google Glass in-game experience, in partnership with the software platform CrowdOptic, will capture new and unique perspectives of the in-game experience in real time and instantly share these views for all fans to see through Magic Vision, the tallest high-definition video board in an NBA venue. Magic fans will experience the game through the eyes of a variety of Magic talent and in-game performers. In future games, fans throughout the night will be surprised with random one-ofa-kind Orlando Magic experiences and their reactions to winning these prizes will be captured for the entire arena to see. “The Magic is always looking for new ways to engage and enhance the fan experience,” said Magic CEO Alex Martins. “Google Glass and CrowdOptic provide a unique and organic opportunity for fans to see a different viewpoint of the game. We are excited to test this technology with some of the savviest fans in the league.” The experience will be powered by CrowdOptic, a software platform which analyzes the real-time Google Glass feeds and curates them by their subject mat-

ter and quality, exporting only the highest quality live footage to the scoreboard. CrowdOptic’s ability to analyze where mobile and wearable devices are aimed allows future opportunities, such as optimizing in-seat arena services or providing fans the option to control their own broadcast. The Magic and Amway Center have been recognized for their efforts in the areas of technology and customer service receiving TheStadiumBusiness Awards’ 2013 Customer Experience Award and being named the 2012 Sports Facility of the Year by the SportsBusiness Journal.

World First Solo Show For Kim Keever 'Underwater' Abstracts Opens At Waterhouse & Dodd, New York Startling and beautiful photographic images, generated by releasing and exploding paint pigment in a 200 gallon water tank, are to feature in a oneman show at the prestigious Waterhouse & Dodd's Upper East Side gallery in Manhattan from 2(nd) April to 6(th) May. Created by leading New York artist Kim Keever, the 'Kim Keever: Abstracts' exhibition represents a world first showcase for the latest series of photographs created by the artist in his New York studio. Keever, whose works are represented in many of the major museums and collections around the United States, has developed a unique process through which he creates photographs that capture the explosions of color and form resulting from the release of paint pigments into his huge studio water tank.

“I’ve always lived near the water, whether it was the Eastern Shore of Virginia, Chicago or New York City. There’s a peaceful attraction to the flat rippling surface and the mysteries below. Once I started taking photographs of constructed landscapes submerged in water in a 200-gallon aquarium, I realized I had found my signature work as an artist,” he said. Keever recently dispensed with the landscape elements altogether and started working only with colored paint pigment dropped into the water and photographing the event. “It is a very freeing process. I can explore color and form like never before, albeit through random events since I have very little control once the paint starts moving. Aside from the continued use of water in a tank surrounded by lights,


"Existing collectors and new converts alike will find this show compelling viewing; Keever's work is unique. His earlier landscapes are at first glance redolent of the Hudson River School and are more structured, while the new abstract images, with the paint dispersing through the water more randomly, are more colorful and modern," said Ray Waterhouse, principal of Waterhouse & Dodd. "And they are so affordable, starting at around $3,000." Keever, who originally studied thermal engineering and worked with NASA, combines his knowledge of science with his artwork, allowing him to understand better the properties of the materials he is

working with. His work is held by the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York; Museum of Modern Art, New York; Brooklyn Museum of Art, Brooklyn; Hirshhorn Museum, Washington, DC; Virginia Museum of Fine Arts, Richmond, Virginia and others. He currently lives and works in New York City.

By enclosing the bugs in the frame, Wickbold willingly acknowledges and encourages an accelerated decay of the work; however he cannot control its evolution and the way the print is affected by the process. The result is beyond two-dimensional photographic work: it is a living installation and a performance, evolving on a daily basis, which may result eventually in an empty frame. The theme is that of life itself: forever evolving, disintegrating, and changing into something new.

In May this year Wickbold’s largescale work (pieces sized at 110cm x160 cm) will be exhibited in an important show traveling from Rio, Sao Paulo to Porto Alegre.

But I think it is more representative of the consequences of my philosophy of life ...Lately, much of my work is based in the unconscious, the observation of my work and the reactions it causes, say that it is “ Existentialism “ in question” or “as a question”...

Last February, I had the pleasure to read in a publication that he was invited to honor his art with a specific chair at the Mondial Academy of Art. I strongly believe that the recognition of an artist at this level in life is one of the greatest honors an artist can receive, after all performing in repeated expositions several times around the world is an achievement, but are events that enrich the curriculum and experience of the artist, although, receive the How did this journey come about? honor of an Academy of Arts in the center of My life journey as an artist was totally by the art world is a historical fact that makes the leaps and bounds ...

Encontrei Dominique Lecomte em diversos comentários inteligentes e de arte pelas conversas de Facebook. Assim resolvemos ser amigos e em minhas viagens sempre tive um bom amigo a dialogar. Suas obras de arte absolutamente profundas e surpreendentes, como se não bastasse a sua docilidade no tratamento e inteligência de diálogos dos mais profundos. Dominique é um Francês que adotou o Brasil como sua Terra há muitos anos e vive em uma cidade por poucos conhecida no interior do Estado de São Paulo, Catanduva. Cidade esta que já tive a oportunidade de conhecer nos idos da década de 90. Agora em Fevereiro de 2014 tive a grata satisfação de ver uma publicação na qual humildemente informou aos amigos ter sido convidado a Honrar sua arte com uma cadeira específica na Academia Mondial de Arte. Acredito muito que o reconhecimento de um artista neste patamar em vida é uma das grandes honrarias que um artista pode receber, afinal fazer exposições repetidas vezes pelo mundo é uma conquista, mas são eventos que enriquecem o currículo e a experiência de mercado, mas receber uma honraria de uma Academia de Artes do centro do mundo das artes é um fato histórico que faz a obra de um artista começar de novo e para sempre.

Quando a pintura invadiu a sua vida?

como tal, para ter a sensação que "não falava para as paredes" quando me expressava picturalmente... e, é claro, para conseguir viver dignamente da minha Arte. Mas o caminho para isso é tortuoso e muito ingrato. A vida de artista plástico não é nada fácil, exigindo muitos sacrifícios e perseverança, para não dizer teimosia...

A arte sempre fez parte da minha vida... no início como brincadeira, como terapia ocupacional durante os castigos... Depois, se tornou uma fuga da minha realidade, na puberdade e adolescência (acho que, até certo ponto, continua sendo). Em seguido, apareceu como modo de expressão até se tornar um objetivos de vida.

Twenty one years ago a relentless romantic passion for the American Way inspired the formation of Confederate Motorcycles in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. The first nine months of existence were entirely conceptual. It was determined that the effort would be design driven and product focused. The creative approach would be organic. Our products would be the most exclusive, small-batch handcrafted thoroughbred motorcycles ever produced. The singularity of line memorialized by Oscar Wilde’s commentary concerning effective industrial design would inform joinder of the power, strength and beauty line in the form of American drag race industrial design architecture, which was benchmarked as our core competency. Our cultural cornerstone would be non-materialism. Our executive approach would emphasize principled individualism. Our goal would be to nurture diverse actualized creativity. The effort relocated to San Francisco in 1992. A fruitful collaboration with Sandy Kosman and Martin Windmill began. Sandy and Martin were, without question, America’s leading motorcycle drag racing chassis design specialists. For a glorious 18 months we lived in a blue sky bubble, dreaming up the beginning of something immortal, the finest American road bike, without any compromises, ex-

cept the limitations of resources to which we were availed. We fantasized about a massive forged one piece centered crankshaft located in a unitized power train case with our own proprietary mounting specifications. Unfortunately our resources did not allow for such a solution. So, as necessity is the father of invention, we invented a non-unitized yet fully loaded cradled power train mounting system by re-bundling and reconfiguring substantive proven high performance components, which we were resourced to procure. The result was a masterwork. We resolved to use the toughest upside-down, turned-around, vertical mount transmission located at the swing arm pivot by a dual threaded axle mounting a billet inner primary tied to a middle motor-transmission lap mount at the center strut of the cradle additionally supported by large diameter outrigger bearings mounting the output shaft to the swing arm pivot point. A big-boned three inch hard steel backbone, two-inch down tube and 1 ¼ inch cradle additionally supported precise neck/swing arm perpendicularity. This first generation chassis-architecture is the ideal paterfamilias upon which our second and third generations owe their deep within the oily bits thoroughbred design DNA. I was awarded Engineering Patent Patent #5857538.pdf for the superior torsion and bend rigidity of this body of work.
