Rêverie of a Summer Morning in Campo Santa Margherita, Venice, 2014, oil on linen, 60x73cm

Campo Santa Margherita, Venice


This painting is about a particular place in Venice which is special to me for the inspiration and joy found there and in Venice and Italy in general. The square is intended to serve as a theatrical backdrop for the pleasures and happiness experienced during a certain period with a certain person and sometimes alone, and to depict some of the things  I have seen or imagined, as I remember them.

“Pleasures are like photographs: in the presence of the person we love, we take only negatives, which we develop later, at home, when we have at our disposal once more our inner dark room, the door of which it is strictly forbidden to open while others are present.”
Marcel Proust
