  • Still Life

The eternal spirit lives amongst the streets of Rome. You can see it in the grandeur of the statues and angels that hover above us. Ageless, timeless, breathless. Standing on the Ponte Sant'Angelo across from the castle with a row of Bernini figures towering over the bridge -- it seems to put one's size, age and relevance in perspective. I look upward waiting for a bird to spread its wings at the same angle as my chosen angel. Pazienza is what is required, waiting patiently for the light, allowing things to come to you in their own time. I wander into a cloister and I'm moved by a dreaming female with sculpted hair and folded robes, tears on her tranquil visage, or Romulus and Remus reaching for the teats of the wolf. It is the respect for the ageless that reminds me to focus on what is real, what is solid enough to endure. This propels me to try and create something that speaks to the height, depth and breath of these elements, and to take notice of the angels that surround us.
