Italy 2019

Artwork Notes | Beneath the Surface

1081 miles traveled on the ground. 4 train rides. 2 missed trains. 6 waves ridden on an airmat. 12 days. 15 paintings. 1 live art collaboration with Viccenzo Ganadu (one of Italy’s most prominent “surf” artists) , 1 encounter witnessed between Dwight Harrington (the first* surfer in Italy) and Allessandro Forte (the first Italian surfer), 1 meal eaten in a buddhist monestary, 3 servings of the best lasagna I’ve ever had. Hard to say how many bottles of wine (produced by 6th generation Italian winemaker Piergiorggio Castellani) to wash it all down.
