Viaggio d'Italia

watercolor and goauche  |  2014

This series of paintings, which utilize different visual elements such as patterns, textures, and architecture drawn from specific places, act as a reflection of my personal experiences with these Italian landmarks. The series has grown beyond just a representation of my relationship with Rome where I was based for approximately 5 months, but has become an overall documentation of my experiences throughout Italy from the sassi of Matera to the peaks of the Dolomites. Cataloging the things that have stood out to me the most throughout my time here in this country, I hope that these paintings can function as a unique perspective of traveling to new places, and encourage others to explore with their own set of eyes.
