Artist's description:

~Positano~ 40x20 inch, Oil on Canvas

This piece reflects the rapid and confused nature of the Italian town of Positano on the Amalfi Coast. The quick, impasto brushstrokes are in contrast to the smooth and soothing water and sunset, leading the viewer to juxtapose the frenetic and chaotic character of the city against its peaceful natural surrounds.

The entire Amalfi coast is on a precipice from the raw natural elements, tilted dramatically towards the Mediterranean, pushed perilously towards cliffs and warped optimistically around mountains. The Amalfi civilization thrives in plain stubbornness against the elements.

This piece displays the calm and uncaring character of a Southern Italian sunset as contrasted with the tumultuous human experience on land, exemplified by use of chaotic and frenzied brushstrokes, layered alternating colours and mismatched strata of the town.
