Pastels and mixed media


...for a two year period, during my residence in Bologna, Italy, beginning in June 1998, I saved envelopes from the correspondence I received on a day to day basis... I thought it might be a way of keeping a sort of diary of my contacts and communications...on each envelope I either drew in pencil and then retraced and coloured with oil pastels, or would transfer images from books and magazine with a solvent, which I then would also colour with oil pastels, enamels or acrylic paints... some of the results are figurative others are less so... it all reflects a day to day relationship to my new home for two years, to those who corresponded with me at a personal or official level, and an emotional/visual diary of the period...these are a few examples of the work...
