Beneath the Surface


In a manner similar to the series Reveries and Other Fantasies, this series is an exploration of the issues of scale, representation, and certainty. Easily recognizable archaeological elements are dis/replaced into environments that are too big for them. Recognition is complicated by the misrepresentation of scale. The use of “ruins” from the Classical era are an acknowledgement of that Roman and Greek underpinning to much of my culture and experience. An experience that I carry with me whether I am at “home” in Italy or “displaced” living abroad.
