WHAT MAKES YOU SEE RED?
LOVE? HATE? PASSION? VIOLENCE?
For me it ranges from the personal to the political, from primordial angst to orgasmic joy.
The AMORE E ROMA series was started in 1997 when I took a short break from my art life in the States to immerse myself in the ancient city of Rome. Based on my experiences and observations, curiosities and passions, I created hundreds of these works on paper (oil on tracing paper to be specific). They each measure 9 x 12 inches. I’ve exhibited the originals in galleries and alternative spaces – always unframed, hung in a large expansive grid directly on the wall, vulnerable to both air currents and curious fingers. I still have many of the original works.
The fine folks at Turning Art are now producing reproduction prints in order to make the Amore e Roma series accessible to more people. They look amazing hung in a large grid of 30 or so pieces. And Turning Art provides a great way to try them out for next to nothing!
Feel free to be in touch if you’d like to own any of the originals.
