About this artwork
The fanciful notion that these blocky residences were carved right out of the side of the cliffs was the impression that inspired this painting, shares artist Joe Giuffrida. He presents a panoramic view of a city on the Amalfi coast. He leaves most of the architecture white to create one large shape that fits like a puzzle piece into the surrounding cliffs and foliage. The space becomes the central highlight of the entire composition against the vibrant shades of enclosing nature.
