Objects of Repeated Correction
Altered complicated digressions. Ideas or reflections which later may take a different form, a final shape or destination. Rubbed, obliterated, slightly obscured, refreshed and covered over again, leaving a history of color, shape line and texture. Sharp and edgy, in your face moments juxtaposed with soft, messy illegible musings, with no particular format. Surfaces, hopefully unsettled and mysterious, enabling a continuation of an unending visual journey and intellectual examination. An external witness to my wanderings, which suggest a narrative – but there isn’t one.
Rome is where I found my passion, the beauty, the decay, layers of life all mixed together in a complex urban environment. This is what I try to bring to my paintings and my life.
