Noepoli Work, Italy
I'm nearly complete with my work here and being quite productive in my short 2 weeks, as the motivation of an exhibition on my last evening here definitely has added some push. For the size of this tiny village, apparently the exhibitions draw a good size crowd, so I'm preparing my work for hanging, as well as a slide show and artist talk.
The paintings I am posting are a few small sections of 3 long horizontal pieces that juxtapose different elements of the world I see around me with old archival photos I found in the local history museum. Then of course I have to mess with them to obscure any real definition of person or place. I have become more interested in the strange aspect of the images I use, and in this case contrasting them with the vertiginous views of the stone alleys that climb the side of this mountain.
