Italy Series No. 6 12x12 resin on wood panel

This is one of my earlier pieces where I explore my fascination with cubes/squares, while integrating my photography and maps plus mixed media using words stamped in steel. On the bottom portion you will find a small map of Malta and to the right is a photo of the place where my mom and dad met in the late 1940's, a place where people would go dancing. To the right of that you will see 3 little girls, that is me the youngest with my sisters Anita and Marjorie in our backyard when living in Malta (1967-69). This is the house my dad grew up in, 37 High Street in Sliema.

Italy Series No. 5 12x12 resin on wood panel

This is one of my earlier pieces where I explore my fascination with cubes/squares, while integrating my photography and maps plus mixed media using words stamped in steel. On the bottom to the left of the boot, you will see a photo of my dad; Tony Vella and myself (eating an ice-cream cone) sitting in front of the Trevi Fountain in Rome, 1967. You will see this image hidden in other works - it is my homage to my father, he was photographer and well travelled with a love for maps. He also gave me his Canon cameras whenever he upgraded to a new one.
