cities made visible

i spent part of the past 24 hours moving in and out of the cityscapes described in italo calvino’s “invisible cities” that are being brought to life by artist colleen corradi brannigan. read more in an article about this effort and check out the mixed media masterpieces on the artist’s website. a few faves embedded below, as well.

diomira

tamara

ottavia

especially inspiring and oddly reaffirming because during my initial dive into the work of sebald earlier this year, i kept sketching and drawing (in anticipation of painting) some of the books’ discursive and narrative genealogy. the words literally take you places. [insert favorite place/space/travel phrase or sentiment here; a simple one for me: “oh, the places you’ll go!”]
