For me everything looks better, tastes better, and sounds better in Italian.
While living in Rome one winter while my husband was working there I became enchanted with Mt. Testaccio. A mountain built of broken amphorae, these large ceramic jars were used by the ancient Romans to import olive oil for their growing populations daily consumption. After shipping and decanting, the jars were broken and carefully stacked into a pile which grew into a large recycled mountain. These collages are filled with people and things of Rome. One has drawings of ancient celebrities alongside people I saw on the street: another is a crazy-quilt of papers I gathered while there; another contains pictures of local graffiti with a Bansky homage.
all pieces collage onto board/no frame.
