Tourist/Local (Diptych)

Dual images of The Amalfi Coast, bringing up questions of perception within the viewer to compare between local and tourist sensibilities.
2011, oil on canvas
(2) 70cm x 100cm

This is one of the first pieces I painted while studying in Florence, Italy. It is from an adventure I had in September ’11 in The Amalfi Coast. The diptych shows two distinctly different views on the same image, which signifies a separate perception between the two. This contrast calls into question the perspective of a tourist against that of an Italian local.
