Ready to Hang
I paint landscapes drawn from the memories of places where I feel at home: the maple forrests of new england, the river valleys of
upstate New York, or the mountainsides of colorado. Unlike the placese they represent, my paintings are shaped not by
the forces of nature but by the details that I have visually catalogued and indexed in my mind, the colors and forms that
have made lasting impressions on me, the ones that visually connect me to a place when I see them painted on a board--
Its a powerful thing a painting, it can be an airline ticket for your heart.
My hope for you, viewer, is a visual experience that will take you too to a place; A place you've been, or a place
you'd like to go. it makes no difference to me whether its the one I was remembering when I painted the scene.
The exact locations of my landscape paintings are intentionally kept vague as the coordinates at which
I stood as I soaked in my surroundings have no real bearing on whether I might succeed in my goal of sending you
off to a place that you remember fondly, someplace where you felt safe and happy and at one with the natural beauty that
surrounded you there. A place you feel at home.
Our identity expands and is enriched as the places that we feel at home, if only temporarily, are multiplied. -Yi-Fu Tuan Gianni Sporco has been featured prominently on his own website and can often be found walking his dog off-leash to your local liquor store just after it opens. He thinks that it is ok to fly fish in the nude. He is not concerned with the current job shortage because he doesn't want a job anyway. Art does not need to be intimidating. You can understand it, you can own it, and you can love it.
