A Message from Viviana
I've been painting mandalas from my early age and step by step I discovered the way to my inside.
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.
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.
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
the same time, this is the way that we
learn to be present during each moment
of our life.
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

European Art Museum is in every way surprisingly spacious in the way it succeeds in displaying the special quality of contemporary art to overcome and transform all restrictions.
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.
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.
Awards ceremony for the important celebrities from the world of culture was held inside the Velli Palace in Rome. Rome has been one of the most important and well-known cities in the world for 34 centuries. In the historical panorama it is a unique case: in part, the Etruscan tombs, the republican fora, the imperial temples, the paleo-christian basilicas, the medieval bell towers, the Renaissance palaces and the baroque churches. Julius Caesar was very important for the history of art, was the first to create an art museum, transformed the imperial forum into a Museum. The award consists in a precious customized sculpted trophy. The sculpture, representing Giulio Cesare is realized by Tuscan artisan, with a mix of marble dust and resins. The gilding is handmade. It's a precious craftsmanship work, with a base of black marble.
