The Studio of Art- Richard Ozanne 2003-06
Arriving in Torino it was not long before an offer for a wonderful studio came forth in Venaria Reale Italy. It looked over the castle and was across the block and down the way from the magnificent Parco d' Mandria.
I began work as soon as the lease was signed for the studio and I moved in. During my residence in Venaria it was not long before I started exhibiting frequently in Torino as well as surrounding cities after meeting some of the most famous artists of the current generation and the vangard artists of Italys recent past.
There was a wonderful acceptance into the culture of Italy, that was heartfelt and enduring. I had a piano to practice on and things seemed on an oveall vertical accent to some of the most amazing experiences.
Of course there were the problems that came mostly from a person I trusted who was my fiencee and an American. But that is aside from the point as such problems really did not need to exist, but did, and were somehow a detrimental circumstance. (See Marni and Deardress as a comical and dastardly episode...some fact, gut wrenching, endearing and sad as part of this venture)
The artist s life continues on despite this. and enjoys what beauty there is in the country of beauty and arts. The Studio in Venaria Reale/Torino
