At Civitella I was able quite literally to get back to the drawing board. For my work I need the quiet and time to draw and revise, cut things up, change their order and form, reconsider them, wreck them and start again. At Civitella I developed clusters of free-floating drawings exactly in this way, and also had time to take some glorious intermissions to see inspiring things like Piero della Francesca paintings.
