Ciao Tony!

Thank you for having my work at your place. Here is a page with a few words about the piece.

I hope you enjoy!

This painting is part of a series entitled Sketchbook, it started during the period of my residency at Palazzo Monti, in Italy, in November 2018.

 

The title Sketchbook reveals its concept of an ongoing drawing: a fluid composition of different references from History and Art.

 

Particularly, in this case, many different historic objects live together in this wild Brazilian garden: fragments of Greek-roman statues, two African masks, and an Egyptian symbol in blue.

 

One special reference is the yellow-green plant in the bottom right corner called "Espada de São Jorge" [Sword of Saint George], a very popular plant in Brazil, used in rituals as a protective plant against evil.

 

Finally, the canvas bring together many different instances of protection, cultures, and nature.
