AMOR Is ROMA Backwards

2001, book, paper, gold leaf, 5 x 9 inches.

I have been in love in Rome. When I lived at the American Academy in Rome, Luke would come every weekend to visit me and arrive on the last flight at 1 am.  We would explore this magical city and eat like kings. It was better than magic.

In truth, this was made before the time  mentioned above and the name used to be “We Are Going to Rome”.   This was when I aspired to be in Rome with Luke. I guess it was a premonition, because it actually happened.
