BSR December Mostra 2015

From October 1st to December 29th of 2015 I was a resident artists at the British School at Rome on an Australia Council for the Arts award.

I came to Rome to visit 90 Churches in 90 days in order to extensively interrogate and document the 'Cosmatesque' mosaics produced in and around the city throughout the 12th and 13th Centuries; masterful works utilizing a language of pure geometry to express a metaphysical cosmology, made from recycled stone gathered from the Fori Romani.

A number of arworks were developed as a result of these observations, they are a distillation of both the experience of looking at these mosaics first hand and an attempt to integrate elements of this symbolic language of materials and geometry employed by the 'Cosmatesque' artists into my personal lexicon.  As part of the residency the other 6 resident artists and I exhibited works produced at the British School at the December Mostra (exhibition) 2015.
