Parco della Villa Ada
Acrylic on canvas

"Not faithful representations of specific scenes, they are as much suggestions of an interior voyage of memory and feeling as reflections of an outward voyage to another place, with its distinctive history, architecture and environment. The characteristic domes and bell towers, the umbrella pines and cypresses, the warm and strong colors became the language I used to create a sort of dreamscape that conveys the feeling of place."
"This shot evokes memories of those hours spent with my cheek pressed up against the car window as a kid."
