The Stones of Florence series arises out of a 50 year history with the Italian city - as a traveller, student, artist, teacher, researcher, and lover. Named for Mary McCarthy’s book, following John Ruskin’s Stones of Venice, who walked the streets as have I. These paintings, made from the rocks, stones, and earth of Florence and the Etruscan hill town of Fiesole, are my stories. The pigments, suspended in wax, are absorbed by the ground of marble dust collected in the hills of Carrara.
