OUR RESIDENCIES IN ITALY
"The beauty, the history, and the mystical atmosphere of Perugia immediately sparkled my imagination and inspired me to create a four-part piece - a quadriptych. Each panel on paper is influenced and dedicated to a specific part of the town and also to the architectural elements in which Perugia is full of. Every panel has its own name and all four I titled "PERUGIA", so there is "Corso", "piazzas, arcs and stairs" , "via", and "gates".
My inspiration came from the intricate web of streets all bounded by arcs and gates, passages and squares. All of it reminds me of a organism that I see in a micro and also macro scale, this analogy of a living thing and architecture is very much related to my overall artistic philosophy.
I would also very much like to thank the city and everybody involved for inviting me here and giving me this amazing opportunity to experience Perugia and everything else that beautiful Perugia has to offer!"
