Mattia Biagi, Los Angeles, once upon a time

MAttia Biagi

 

Title: once upon a time

year: 2012

size: 18x24inches

media: paper and watercolor

 

This watercolor/drawing relates to a carriage sculpture I created for an exhibition based on fairy-tales and fantasy still on view through June 7th 2012 at the Mint Museum in Charlotte, NC.

 

Often my work incorporates TAR as a medium, which was inspired by the "La Brea Tar Pits" in Los Angeles, where I have lived for the past 10 years. LA is a city that in my childhood imagination, was a fairy-tale place.

 

The carriage in this drawing depicts this tar sculpture and that's why it is colored in black. As soon as I saw the Jordan estate I immediately envisioned the location as a scene from a fairy tale.
