      Have you ever entered a room and it fairly crackles with energy? I call that "static electricity." And I find that sometimes it is so powerful that it almost knocks me over...or sends me running (or watching my back)... At other times, it is more subtle, sparking just under the surface.  Heed the intuition when you feel that surge... It could be our subconscious picking up on vibes beyond our comprehension.

Official Press Release:


Visual arts exhibit produced by Brazilian and French curators explores the beauty and the challenges of the environment

Paris, October 9th, 2015 – “Terra” (earth) - one of the four elements of nature - is the inspiration for a visual arts exhibit that will be held at Artitude Gallery in Paris, from October 19th to 25th, 2015. The vernissage is scheduled for Monday, October, 19th at 6pm.

Through the work of artists from different nationalities, "EARTH" will display the beauty and the challenges of the environment, featuring paintings, sculptures and photographs inspired by nature.

The show is produced by a partnership between the galleries Artitude, in Paris, and Saphira & Ventura, in New York, and is curated by the Brazilians Alcinda Saphira and Louis Ventura and the French Jean Pierre Lorriaux.

"TERRA" is a traveling art exhibit created by the Brazilian curator Alcinda Saphira in 2007. The project brings together artists with different nationalities, backgrounds and styles under the same theme, which aims to raise awareness to the importance of preserving the planet.

The first three editions of "TERRA" took place in New York with the participation of more than 50 artists in total. This year, the exhibit arrives in Paris with 22 Brazilian, American and European artists.

"The work of these artists are characterized by the diversity and complexity of various cultures, but they do have in common the libertarian art". Their commitment as citizens encourages them to do art not only with commercial intent, but also with philosophical and social purposes”, she added.
