“Ogni città riceve la sua forma dal deserto a cui si oppone.”
(Each city receives its shape from the desert it opposes.)
Le Città Invisibili, Italo Calvino
Started in 2016, this collection takes its name from a chapter of Italo Calvino’s book “The Invisible Cities”. In particular, the phrase quoted above, and the dichotomy it expresses, between two entities in dialogue and conflict, remains the main theme of these paintings. Though not closed, there have been no new Hidden Cities since the end of 2022. An extensive collection of the paintings made over those six years is reported here.
