Citta’ di Vetro (City of Glass)

Oil on canvas

This painting is a call from a distant place and time.  It is from a series exploring identity, as a result of memory and distance. I went through thousands of pictures I found in my family's house in Milan. To illustrate the distance between my present self and the past, I used washed-out hues and asymmetrical structures, adding a layer of surrealism typical of the haze produced by memory.
