I visited the Basilica several times after the Feb earthquake & on one visit the sky, the light & my head were aligned in the right creative space. I knew what I had to do as I had thought about this image for sometime, so out came the camera & I captured the images that I need to tell the story.
I introduced the images to my apple canvas & a little bit of whiskey (good Islay malt does the trick) I finally came up with my artistic impression of the Basilica as I now see it.
The artist makes us believe that what we hold inside is possible. Or alternately the artist speaks for what is already inside of us, giving us a voice and a new way to explore what we are already feeling. –
