  1. Hello Georgia

    I would like to thank you for chosing and including me in the top-ten list of these wonderful artists. Given that we are all from such different cultural backgrounds, I was struck by your perceptive comments on how we are nevertheless linked by our admiration of hybrid beings and the anthropomorphous. It would be wonderfull to gather all of us in a gallery exhibition!

    Your interest in my work is both flattering and encouraging.

    Thanks again and warm regards

    Carmen Dardalla

    Joyful mythology
    I love the fiery (or the icy) centaurs, they remind me of childhood. Their heroic choreography and their matter are pure music.
    Great choices, as always.

  3. Robert Masters says:

    Hi there, I love these works! I’m really interested in animal-human metamorphois. I just thought you might be interested in viewing an image i created based on this idea. It’s a digital photo-manipulation that combines elements of my own face and a snow leopard.

    Great collection,
