I am thrilled to post this new piece “Untitled (Ideal City) #2.”

I started this painting March of 2022. The image is a composite of AI generated images that were trained on renaissance era paintings that predominantly featured architecture (like Fra Carnevale’s Ideal City). I then painted it in a similar way to late 16th-century painting techniques (marble dust and rabbit skin glue gesso, damar varnish glaze layers, etc)
