    London must be the foggy, dreary black and white, and Rome is full of colorful vitality. Then again, I’ve never been to either.

  2. Hello, Fig says:

    there are 2 separate images for this one, kerbey – rome is the spanish steps / flowers / the top of a bottle of cinzano, and london is lights / taxis / big ben … πŸ™‚

  3. Hello, Fig says:

    thank u, julie! x

  4. Hey Fig, I must say that, although I was in London two weeks ago and it really impressed me by its beauty, your Rome collage here is far better! It actually reminded me of the city I had seen back in 2009-> http://kouremenosmallias.wordpress.com/2013/10/25/rome-2009/

    I really like this piece, is it a diptych? It works very well in contrasting place with an individual and memory.

    • Hello, Fig says:

      nope, not quite a diptych, only the london one actually exists now, i overlaid the rome one. you can kind of see it poking out from under her fingers

    Absolutely gorgeous, Ben. Fun, yet filled with deeper meanings, serious, yet not at all dull.

    Love how you’ve represented the characters of the two cities. A lot of truth and really cool collages but London definitely gets the raw end of the color wheel πŸ™‚

    • Hello, Fig says:

      hey jackie, sorry for the late reply.. yep tbh i’ve never been to rome so maybe that one’s a bit idealised.. london feels a lot more like home i guess πŸ™‚
