(In)visible Cities - small

About this project

(In)visible Cities is a series of mosaic and cast concrete artworks inspired by Italo Calvino’s novel and Carlo Scarpa’s architecture.  The work plays with the notion of what is visible - exploring the intimate detail, and beauty, of unseen, ‘glimpsed’ spaces.  It depicts a highly personal response to ‘place’ which combines an interest in abstracted, simplified forms with subconscious associations and memories evoked by the built environment - juxtaposing colour, texture, materiality and scale.
