ART TODAY 021018 The burned brushes that enhanced a legend for Alexandra Dillon: FAB Gallery’s PalimpsestVenice (watch the video)


This post originally published January 28, 2017. Since then, it has been updated.

This time last year, Flavio Bisciotti was cleaning up the remains from a fire that burned down his home art-studio in Venice. The loss included his personal paintings, photographs and ephemera, furniture, objects, tools, materials, clothing, files, and things he had collected over his lifespan. When Flavio recovered from the initial shock, he spoke with his friends and the idea to create art from what he could salvage was conceived.

Alexander Dillon told TribeLA Magazine that she took the burned brushed home, and at first, she didn’t know what to do with them. She played with them turning them back and forth … then she began to paint and stories evolved. With all of her brushes, “They show up and tell me who they are,” she says. Working on each piece over the course of several days, she finds the emotion and personality of her characters. The results are beautiful and engaging faces, often reminiscent of Roman-Egyptian mummy portraits or Baroque painting. “I’m influenced by the art of every era”, she says.

#PALIMPSESTVenice (something reused or altered but still bearing visible traces of its earlier form), is an appropriate name for an exhibition that not only brings creativity from the loss-damage but also a collaboration with local artist and the community. Since Flavio (chief creative officer of FAB-gallery in Santa Monica) has curated art exhibits in the past that involved local artists, the participants were not only able to make art from the ruins, the project also strengthened their relationship with each other.

Murphy wrote a book that is riveting, intimate, and a fun read. Learning about our four brain chemicals that determine our personality traits is interesting however, I found Murphy’s personal experience even more intriguing. Not every woman is going to embrace mid-life on a Harley, but living vicariously through Murphy’s travels gives us insight into what it means to embrace mid-life rather than complain about it. Her story and her book is compelling. What a joy it was to spend an afternoon in my easy chair riding on a bike with Bernadette Murphy.
