“When, on one of those lucky days, I was asked to contribute a design for a carpet project, I eagerly accepted. At once I realized that a long awaited opportunity had arrived. I could take Venice, the city in which I have lived, apply its essence and architecture and somehow weave it into a carpet. To explore the never seen angels, infants, saints and sages, columns, pillars, domes and arches, marble lacework, marble folds, the rich, opulent and lavish proportions, and copy these overwhelming sights into a proportionately small camera. Merging these awe-inspiring images with technology, a journey unfolded and the aim became clear: I am spinning a yarn for the master weavers.”
