There is something primordial about water and it unsettles the senses. This is a work born during my 2019 Venice residency and completed this year. Inspired by La Serenissima…the magical city floating in a lagoon, it evokes a treasured Venetian belief that the glass-green waters of her canals never leave Venice, that they do not flow into the sea but continually circulate around the canals. They share their beloved Vivaldi and all their music, and carry all their songs, their secrets and their lovers, for all time.
