The Verona (detail)
marble-chip terrazzo
The Verona, Santa Monica, CA

The Verona was designed and built by the architect Vito Cetta and his partner Peter Lwei. In 1989 they approached me and asked to include my work in their building project. I welcomed the opportunity, since they offered an integration of my work into the architectural aspect of the building that opened itself to the sky on each floor. I created a seamless combine of my images into the floors, carpets, ceilings, and lights at the outdoor entrance, lobby and the 2nd floor terrace. The media varied from cut and etched glass, water, paint on canvas, terrazzo, acrylic painting on wet cement, latex paint on cement and Polaroid sky paintings.
