This is another drawing of spatial ‘slippage’ between scaffold and building. There is a new urban ‘inbetweenness’ that begs to be explored: a chance to measure ourselves against our architectures; to live between fantasy and reality; to witness the details and decay of our own creations.
The hourglass is running out on our time in Rome. I have one page left in my tan sketchbook. I admit I chose tan a bit prematurely back in St. Louis, but it turned out to be a nice ‘ruin’ base from which to push and pull light and shadow. I will probably start to segue into posting studio work from here on out.
