Project description

Le Stanze, is Italian for Rooms. Resulting from a Residency in Venice at the Scuola Internazionale di Grafica in the Summer 2015, these polychromatic prints embody the essence of traditional print making. Lines, shapes and colors using Chine Colle' and Silkscreen redefine the space of a room originally lit by planes of green laser light. Le Stanze prints are an original exploration on subtractive colors. Using copper plates I etched a minimalistic rendering of Untitled, a room lit and crisscrossed by ten laser planes (Jack Straw Production 2014). In absence of depth and shadows Le Stanze prints provide a departure from reality to become utter abstraction.

This project has received a 2014 GAP grant from Artist Trust.
