"In the still water of the fountains one saw the splash of human faces, ignited by these gold and scarlet stars as they rose hissing into heaven like thirsty swans." from Justine by Lawrence Durrell.

ALA' MORANDI

Every so often I come across an artist's name that I haven't thought of in a long time. I've admired so many. I can't remember exactly where Giorgio's name came up but from somewhere I was directed to a New York Times article. It was either from art surfing or a magazine, like Art Forum.  From there, I read several NYT articles.

Giorgio Morandi.

Whenever I see or hear something I really like I tend to go overboard and try and absorb the essence like a giant reef sponge. At some point I'll get it out of my system. But not entirely of course. Everything that affects you deeply changes your atoms a bit.

After reading the articles and looking at several galleries of his pictures I went into my office this morning with a cup of Sulawesi and a couple of cookies and I started shooting.
Ala' Morandi. Less the muted colors.
