Recently completed courtyard painting for Liceo Scientifico E. Fermi and Festiwall in Ragusa, Sicily.
Acrylic paint on asphalt
14x45 meters - 45x147 feet
Our hope is for the work we painted in the courtyard at Liceo Scientifico to add an element of inspiration and curiosity for the students of the school.
We used colors that contrasted starkly with the existing architecture and we were very conscience of the space and scale we worked in.
The forms, lines and colors are intended to be purely compositional but I enjoy the idea of viewers having different interpretations of the work.
One of the most challenging parts of making this painting was thinking ahead so we wouldn’t destroy previously painted areas by walking on it.
Using a rough preliminary drawing as a guide, we worked as a team from beginning to end in the creation of the artwork.
I thoroughly enjoyed the collaborative process and interactive nature of the project.
Many thanks to Marina, Isabella, Alicia, Vincenzo, Festiwall, Liceo Scientifico, the volunteers, Argo Software and Sigma Coatings for all the help and support.
