Firenze (28 works)


In 2015, I lived in one of the most conventionally beautiful cities of the world, Florence. I showed my work in a restaurant, a research institute, and at a university.

At the university I called the show "Firenze: On the Edge of the Postcard" and wrote the following about it:

All too often we glimpse Florence through the lens, with the selfie stick, from the windows of moving vehicles. We frame its sunny hills and famous art, cropping out the asynchronous bits, trying to capture the perfect postcard shot. If we're lucky, we sketch it.
This collection of contemporary paintings, instead, tries to apprehend a less common image of the Bella Città, including the area around the university: the lived-in streets, the popular residential housing, and the people.
The work is the product of months of close looking and exploration just off the trodden path, though still through the relatively unacquainted eyes of a foreigner. It encourages a deep, decentred reading of place and draws attention, ultimately, to the centrality of land, who defines and can access it, and how it is stewarded—a morally vital question for our time. The work also focusses light on the city as the centre of culture and knowledge production and increasingly where most of us across the globe are opting to live.

Here are the works.
