St. John’s, Newfoundland : Canadian contemporary painter Ran Andrews is pleased to announce that he will represent his country at the upcoming
Biennale Internazionale dell’Arte Contemporanea, in Florence, Italy.

The fifth edition of the Florence Biennale will take place in the historical Fortezza da Basso from 3 to 11 December 2005. The Biennale artists are emerging and career contemporary artists chosen by the internal committee and are coming from all over the world to share their vision. Despite their differences of language and faith, they find a common language in art to communicate their cultural values. For this reason, in 2001, the United Nations recognized the Florence Biennale as an official partner in the program "Dialogue Among Nations". The last exhibition was defined as a wonderful Biennale, with 890 artists from 72 countries illustrating Kofi Annan's statement: "Artists have a special role to play in the global struggle for peace. At their best, artists speak not only to people; they speak for them. Art is a weapon against ignorance and hatred and an agent of public awareness… Art opens new doors for learning, understanding, and peace among people and nations."

Ran will exhibit and compete for the prestigious Lorenzo il Magnifico gold medal with three paintings from his well known Goddesses series:

Erzuli : Voudou goddess of passion, pleasure and prosperity. Oil on canvas 2003.

Nemesis : Greek goddess of devine retribution. Oil on canvas 2004.

Liberty : a contemporary version of the Roman goddess of personal freedom.
Oil on canvas 2005.
