“Via Del Corso” charcoal and screen print on paper
In 2006 I cashed in the family jewels so I could fully commit to my art practice.
I traveled to Italy to be part of the New York Studio Schools summer drawing marathon program studying the major major fresco sites of Northern Italy. We were based in the Umbrian hill top town of Orvieto the site of Signorelli’s masterwork in the San Brizio Chapel.
Following this period I merged the experience of being emersed in the Italian renaissance with my existing practice. It resulted in an abundance of work in the following years with a more complex narrative and spatial sense.
