The Rome Project

The Rome Project reflects my experiences  while a visiting artist at the American Academy in Rome in 2009 and 2010, studying the 1748 map of Rome created by Giambattista Nolli. My intent was to synthesize the character of this historic map with the layers, patterns and textures of modern Rome  through photographs, drawings and paintings made at locations highlighted in Nolli’s map. The results took many forms — an offset-printed book, hand-made paper pulp paintings, watercolors, drawings, linoleum prints and etchings.
