Italy's vertical playscapes

Philippa Armstrong

2015 - 2018

Pienza, Tuscany, Italy; Monterenzio, Emilia-Romagna, Italy; Castelluccio dei Sauri, Apulia, Italy; Vicenza, Veneto, Italy

I was born in london and originally came to Italy as an artist. Even if i have exhibited in many place here and abroad with my art work i have recently turned my attention also to the images i have archived over the last 20 years while travelling .

They are images gathered of my life created here in the hills in Monterenzio near bologna and captured while abroad or travelling around Italy .

Each snap has a Strong and significant memory ( or just an essence of each place ) however i have literally overlapped each reality so much so as to create a new personalized ironic utopia .

Fragments of my life left behind ,but not forgotten ,blended with another reality therefore taking on a new meaning. 

The majority of them are called playscapes ,giochi di Paesaggio, probably by doing so, makes it more acceptable and livable? Nevertheless certainly more enjoyable.
