In 2011/2012 I spent 8 monts living in Foligno, Italy – A small city in Umbria.
As I'd done almost twenty years earlier – long before the internet was ubiquitous, and Kickstarter even existed – I created a "send-an-artist-to-Italy" program. I invited collectors, friends and colleagues to support this longer sojourn in Italy by making a donation before my departure and in exchange, I promised to make a small piece of art to be delivered upon my return.
These images are some of the pieces that were the result of that trade. They are mixed media collages that include some or all of the following: watercolors, gouache, graphite, gesso, oilstick, wax, plaster and ephemera.
