About a year ago, I had to leave Italy to return home to Nazareth, and unfortunately I had to leave my studio in Genoa. Back in Nazareth, I rebuilt my workspace in the ground floor of my house in an open, bright, and spacious space.
I imported many things from the previous workspace to continue to practice my artistic interests in the new space. My job is to experiment with new techniques, materials, and methods, so I tend to use even the walls. I use large tables that I build it from scraps of wood that I find around. In my current workspace, I have the opportunity to create large-scale works, especially on wood, and have the space to keep them there.

My ground-floor studio space is where I have been working for the longest periods, painting all day with an occasional break to go for a swim or play tennis. On my work table are my paint brush, paint tubes, and gloves.

This photo was shot early in the morning with the sunrise beaming into the large window off to the right of image. I’d just finished the painting held on the easel, and I was preparing to photograph it. This is actually quite organized and tidy compared to a “usual” day. Typically, there are multiple palettes spread across both tables and piles of used blue rags on the floor around the easel.

Welcome to my little studio, which is a spare bedroom in our apartment. I love my little studio; it’s very small but very cozy and inspiring. I am surrounded by my little creations — I go for a peek before going to bed at night and again when I wake up in the morning. I’m forever misplacing things, but I know they’re there somewhere because I’m the only one using that room. I should add some music, but for now I sing in my head!

This my “treehouse studio,” as I affectionately refer to it, because it is a single room on the second floor of a small building hanging over a rather quiet alley in the active community of North Park. With natural light blazing in from all directions, my studio offers me a wonderful place to analyze the effects of the day’s shifting light on my work. The small space offers me a constant tug-of-war between organized access to my tools and creative disorganization, which is probably more of a reflection of my state of mind than anything else. I enjoy painting with acrylics on wood panels and canvases using an easel or a flat table top, which is just out of sight in this picture. Heavy tarps cover the hardwood floors to protect them from my carelessness. To combat the astonishing coastal desert heat, I have a “swamp cooler” and ceiling fan to keep me comfortable. For professional reflection, I enjoying working in a room surrounded by my past works and works-in-progress, and I change them out as suits my mood. Also just offstage is my tireless surround-sound system, which fills the space with music, and a laptop connected to 32″ TV monitor for when I need to turn off my brain.
The University of Virginia researchers wrote that the data “provides compelling evidence that these symbols are associated with hate.”
We are waiting for spectacle and when the quotidian, yet incongruous actions occur I wonder whether there is any real payoff coming.
