Florence Drawing
2017
tape on tile
12' x 30'
I was invited to install a drawing at the Florence School of Art in Florence, Italy. The school is housed in Giorgio Varsari home and studio (look him up) and the entrance has a badly damaged fresco above the door. So I arrived with all my materials not knowing what I was going to do. I was told that the sculpture was in response to the flood of 1966 and was created for the 50th anniversary. My drawing is a combination of images I brought from my studio and photos I took while visiting the Basilica of Santa Croce, and responding to the flood, sculpture, and damaged fresco.
