I forgot all that I knew of gravity ...



                        dready art, I forgot all that i knew of gravity - 20x30 - limited edition print on canvas

the quote is a version of a line from a poem by rudy francisco called gravity …

the idea for the image started with a photo of a classic fiat 500 down a side street somewhere in italy; the street was empty, but beautiful, the light, the cobbles, the very silent emptiness …

and i love this car as an aesthetic, i've used it, a fiat 500, before - in a piece called 'ciao mennagio'.

i wanted to put a couple in the scene and i was looking for a late 60's style for them …

just that, two people, walking together … and in that simplicity of togetherness a joy and a lightness to their being …

it wasn't about any history, it wasn't about any personal moment, it was about an aesthetic i had seen and felt and how i wanted to translate that into a dready …

and i like the way they are leaving the scene, his hand already out as if they're coming to see you …

peace an' love!
