MARCOROSSI artecontemporanea Exhibition Milan - Verona Italy 2019

Thanks to Marco Rossi for providing me with a studio in Milan in 2019.  It was a pleasure working in Milan.  The studio had many skylights which made it a beautiful place to work in. When I needed a break I enjoyed walking around the neighborhood, often stopping for an espresso and brioche. There is something liberating in being a foreigner and not knowing anybody--and having no other responsibilities than to make artworks.  The artworks made during this period were exhibited in the Verona gallery
