The Work


I like to work beyond standard expectations of presentation and access. Gouache and graphite suspend the viewer in a place between painting and drawing. The material and structure of my work references the visual plane of a prayer book, dedicated to orphans, that was hand-made by my grandfather. Various kinds of tape in the work possess their own geometry and metaphor. The work is intentionally frameless, floating, transient .... moving. The importance of language and our responsibility to choose our words carefully is paramount in this work that is expressed through Italian, Latin and English.
