I am showing two new pieces of work in Verona this October. The first is for "Enchanted Dialogues". The works will be displayed around the city and were made in response to Verona.
"As rich in having such a jewel, As twenty seas, if all their sands were pearl."
A brooch made for Silvia, a character from Shakespeare’s “Two gentlemen of Verona”. The brooch is influenced by Victorian painter’s representations of Shakespeare’s Verona plays.
"The exhibition "Enchanted Dialogues: Brooches in Tribute of Verona" will be held in the deconsecrated church of San Pietro in Archivolto next to Verona’s Cathedral, from October 8, 2013 to October 20, 2013."
"Curated by Nunzia De Feo and organized by associazione Nurò under the patronage of Verona’s Town Council and Verona’s Province with Cantina Castelnuovo del Garda’s contribution, it has been set-up thanks to the foresight and generosity of Verona’s Cathedral. Given the pressing economic stagnation, Monsignor Antonio Finardi, Verona’s Cathedral Parish Priest, aware that having a job is inseparable from a human being’s dignity, asserts: "It is important to encourage and be close to those who are actively involved in experimenting and exploring new possibilities and solutions".
