GIORGIO DE CHIRICO
Giorgio de Chirico’s paintings marries distorted perspectives, antiquity and spectral humanoid figures to create surreal landscapes. These elements along with his classical influences such as philosophy and mythology are the predominant themes in my own work. Roman piazzas are one of the most common pieces of imagery in his work which I have transitioned into my own work is the archways that lead to nowhere inspiring the door ways and stairways in my paintings. Other influences that we share include nostalgia and architecture from different locations amalgamated together that he used to create his uncanny landscapes.
