‘Constructed Space’ is a show about space, architecture, human inventiveness, and how we have historically viewed the world. It is about the adaptive use of space as well as how photographers handle three or even four dimensions and present bodies of work that are both unique, inventive, expansive, as well as aesthetically, and intellectually compelling.
Metamorphoses, a new series in progress explores Italian legacy in Europe using Ovid’s Metamorphoses as the frame in which to consider heritage and mutability in today’s Europe. Pagan stories overlap with Christian ones, as an anxious response to recent global migrations that may transform the remnants of old Europe into a pluralistic dynamic federation or a closed fortress.
