ESSENCE OF VISUAL POETRY by Arturo Schwarz

"One perceives the immense and loving dedication from which these visions spring. They aim for the sublime and pierce the heart and mind with their startling poetry. A poem which becomes with Tania e Lazlo, to quote Novalis, "the real, the truly absolute real." ... >>


THE ESSENCE OF DECADENCE by Linda Wolk-Simon

"The photographs, in which Tania appears as the model and artistic muse, reprise with uncanny fidelity the moody, poetic compositions of Gustav Klimt and other fin-de-siècle painters. Using the elastic, expressive and contemporary medium of photography, the artists painstakingly translate and reproduce with an almost surreal, magical verisimilitude the language of painting from another epoch.  The result is a series of images that are hyper-real artistic fiction" ... >>


METAMORPHOSIS FOR A REBIRTH by Stefano Cecchetto

"These two artists' universe is full of premonitions, packed with appearances, echoes, shadows, figures that have the role of an epiphany: what sort of Tabula rasa is conceivable in Sleeping beauty's main character's sleep, other than being aware of a waiting in the suspended moment of a condition which brings us back to a place that seems to be the last on earth, where the world stops in the desolation of dusk." ... >>


HBC GLOBAL ART COLLECTION

"The representation of human feelings becomes more personal and explicitly theatrical in the works of Cindy Sherman, Alex Prager, Erwin Olaf and the artist duo Tania Brassesco & Lazlo Passi Norberto who also investigate the feeling of discovery and the desire to experience and connect with nature. Exploring the wildest parts of ourselves and the feeling of freedom is also strongly present in the work of Ryan McGinley and Bill Henson" ... >>


SEHNSUCHT – THE DESIRE FOR ART by Sebastian Karnatz

"I think the conception of this works is so traversed by a subtle postmodern intellectuality that even the melancholy is more acted than truly felt. Brassesco and Norberto create artworks, which go much further than the heartfelt romantic “Sehnsucht" ... >>

ETEREA by Carlo Sala

"Nell'opera dei due autori si concreta dunque un rapporto peculiare tra pittura e fotografia, caratterizzato da un reciproco scambio. Lo scatto coglie l’essenza che animava la tela, delineandone con minuzia i caratteri fondanti; al tempo tesso mira a creare nuove attribuzioni di senso." ... >>


THE DREAMS OF TANIA AND LAZLO by Angela Andreina Rorro

"The study and research are the basis of their work that is actualised in the feeling of similarity that the authors recognise between the age of the painting and the present:  time of crisis, decadence and melancholy. Thus the conceptual relationship with the original artwork slowly becomes emotional and intimate, while the remake becomes interpretation" ... >>


THE MAGICAL IMAGES OF TANIA AND LAZLO by Jean Blanchaert

"These photographs not only amaze for the technical realization, but also for a certain magic, that is the feeling of a real life that actually breathes. Something much closer to us than the paintings from which the two artists have taken inspiration" ... >>


PHOTOGRAPHY INTERPRETING DECADENCE’S PAINTING by Anna Giulia Volpato

"The images, the offspring of the research of  lost time, reveal the "panic for the inevitable deception that enmeshes our lives, the total ruinous fall in this terrible condition" (Auerbach) that is renewed in the silence of the contemporary shots. In a time of political and cultural crisis, the dusty atmosphere of the atelier transforms itself into the glossy patina of the photograph without losing the sensation of the cliff from which the artist inevitably falls" ... >>
