One spring day I arrived at Alchimia, a school for contemporary jewellery in Florence where I attended a one-year course. There were 12 people from many different parts of the world and everybody spoke more than one language; most of us spoke three or four.
For some reason Doris – our teacher – was distraught one morning and she quickly sent us away and into the world outside of the studio. We were to cross the river Arno, go to Museo Marino Marini, and do a series of fast sketches from the sculptures in that museum. Marino Marini was an Italian artist known for his preoccupation with the knight and his horse, which is also the subject matter of many of his sculptures. The museum is located in a former church, is very beautiful, and not frequented by many tourists. I made several of the fast sketches that I had been instructed to do, but then I discovered a sculpture that was almost hidden in a corner. It was half a figure; all of the details were not completed but the face was marvellous. The sculpture was titled Arcangelo and when I saw it, I forgot all about my instructions.
In these pieces, I elaborate on the original pencil drawing and the concept of an angel. Printed on high-quality, 21 x 30 cm, fine-art paper.
Selection of frame examples.
