Piazza della Signoria (aka the Uffizi) - Deconstructed, Inverted, Shifted

Looking down the Uffizi Gallery's courtyard at the Piazza della Signoria

The Uffizi, one of the most famous galleries in the world (and which, inexplicably, I did not visit while I was in Florence. Line ups, if I recall) features this long, narrow courtyard that runs between two wings of the gallery, and opens on the Piazza della Signoria.


I captured this image during a red wine fueled stroll one night in Florence, 2005. It's one of my personal faves, and I have manipulated it a few times. This most recent manipulation was undertaken with my deconstruction technique in mind, the goal of which was to produce a large, dense abstract pattern that balances symmetry with chaos and has a limited palette. I'm learning that making designs like this on a large scale gives me many options when applying that design to merch. The gallery below demonstrates how easy it is to simply vary the level of zoom and position when placing the graphic on different products.


All of these products and many more featuring this design are available on Redbubble.
