THE LAST SUPPER

 

13 vertical diptychs of 96 x 14 ½ inches each. Pittsburgh, 2000
Collection Pittsburgh’s David L. Lawrence Convention Center

 

 

I painted this work in the area just in front of the house where I was living in Pittsburgh. Each diptych represents a pool in the foreground facing another that, as in the distance, is contained just in the inferior canvas. This second pool becomes the foreground in the next diptych, but changing the orientation, and facing a new pool. It is created, like that, a cadenza, just interrupted in the seventh set with the presence of the top of a tree in the sky because the wide angle. The same composition is repeated in the next canvas, but upside down, and reconstructing the rest of the tree in the inferior attached canvas.
