No wonder men robbed banks. There were too many demeaning jobs. Why the hell wasn’t I a superior court judge or a concert pianist? Because it took training and training cost money. But I didn’t want to be anything anyhow. And I was certainly succeeding.

from ‘Ham on Rye’ byCharles Bukowski

"Guggenheim"
Regina DeLuise’s poetic images contain a large range of tones and a lot of texture. To achieve this she makes platinum / palladium contact prints from 8x10” film negatives. 100% rag paper is coated with a light-sensitive chemical and the metals onto which the negative is placed. The large contact prints are soft, dreamy yet strong in expression.

Bergl Rooms in Schönbrunn Palace : A strange, exotic world awaits in these rooms. Walls and ceiling are covered in landscape painting which conveys the illusion of a remote world alive with exotic birds and animals. The murals in the rooms display a succession of landscapes, starting with an untouched exotic landscape and ending with a formal Baroque garden.
“Bergl Rooms”  mural paintings are trompe l’oeil landscape murals commissioned by Empress Maria Theresa and executed by Johann Wenzel Bergl around 1766. A native of northern Bohemia, Bergl was one of Maria Theresa’s favourite artists. She commissioned Bergl to decorate her summer apartments on the ground floor of Schönbrunn Palace together with two other suites. These murals have been preserved and are unique of their kind in Europe.
