“When we dream , we travel to places that we know but they look somehow bizarre” – Susanne Lund Pangrazio, in an interview with SCANTV about her exhibition “In Brushwood” at Gallery70 in Tirana
Brushwood is an almost impenetrable kind of vegetation, it’s the kind of nature that resists the human touch, and so allows other life forms a haven. As a painter the word ‘brushwood’ offers a play with words; brush-wood. The inner images are painted into woods of brush strokes, let loose in a land on the linen surface.
OAS2021 is the second edition of the juried open call for young artists at Gallery70. This year marked an important step forward , bringing on board an International Curator and an International Jury

[…]In the last cycle of conceptual photographs by Jon Kraja , there is a return to the childhood’s unconscious, an aesthetic quest to recompose scenes and relationships that exist only in the own’s oneself . They come as a form of rebellion against the attempt to seek a unique thinking inside the creation. They are there to bring us back to the exploration of beauty and the pure and uncorrupted curiosity of the aesthetic process. The viewer is free to find a personal narrative in the artist’s creation.
SUMMER WITH RETURN TO INNOCENCE
17/07 to 31/07/2021
“Having the right stimulus to make a painting is not just a matter of inspiration but also having the right emotional state. It seems that this situation was created for the painter Albana Shoshi by the photos of his family and childhood, on which he has built a whole cycle of paintings “This imposition of falsehood, imposed that is placed on man when placed in front of an objective to provoke the idea that not everything in this beautiful reality that we see calmly is so,” says Shoshi. A realistic painting that comes very naturally with contemporary colors, a realism that now in time expresses in a way the artistic influence of the painter’s father Zef Shoshi.

“Ai formim i hershëm, formimi bazë, ka ndikuar edhe në zgjedhjen time të kësaj rryme ose të kësaj forme artistike”, thotë Shoshi. Nga kritiket e artit, Albana Shoshi, në aspektin teknik dhe stilistik konsiderohet një përfaqësuese e fotorealizmit në zhvillimet e piktures realiste në Shqipëri. Ajo nis me grumbullimin e informacionit përmes aparatit fotografik, vijon me përzgjedhjen e sasisë së dimensioneve dhe përfundon me ekzekutimin koloristik përmes realizmit në pikturë. Artistja ndërthur realizmin dhe impresionizmin per të arritur objektivin e saj final e pikerish imazhi artistik i kujtesës, emocionit dhe ndjesise se jetuar në një cast në të shkuarën.<br>
“That early the basic formation, has also influenced my choice of this current or this artistic form”, says Shoshi. From the art critics, Albana Shoshi, in the technical and stylistic aspect is considered a representative of photorealism in the developments of realist painting in Albania. It starts with the collection of information through the camera, continues with the selection of the amount of dimensions and ends with the color execution through the realism in the painting. The artist combines realism and impressionism to achieve her final goal and precisely the artistic image of memory, emotion and feeling lived in a moment in the past.
