The Current Project "A Place in Time, is a collaboration with Cecil Campanaro, an acknowledged Venice artist and musician. Cecil and I have lived in Venice, California, since 1996. We have witnessed the extraordinary, and often questionable, evolution of this town. As artists (and siblings) with a shared sentimentality and artistic curiosity, we are inspired to document the beautiful and chaotic subculture that continues to subsist, even as the surface of Venice is scrubbed into a neighborhood for the wealthy.
Our black and white images capture an integral part of our lives and our home. We layered the images with real life nuances through the artistic use of paint, pens, and collage.
Just as Venice has been the foundation for our art and growth, our stark images are the foundation for a unique and compelling story of a town and its people in radical transition.
