Dear Mara Rumiz, President of city council in Venice,
I am a Scandinavian artist working in simple shapes and bright colors.
Last year I was i Venice.
I had a lot of inspiration and made this huge canvas,
Asbjorn Lonvig, "piazza san marco", 2002
Acrylic on canvas
201 x 139 cm
artist's exclusive selection 2003
five numbered, signed and certified specimens - US$ 125,000 each
inspired from a stay in Venice, violin music, cups of expresso and Murano
See http://www. lonvig. dk/exhibition2. htm
I am making an exhibition called "Huge Metallic Sculptures in spectacular places".
The sculpture to Venice is among other things a simple "V".
I call it "il nuovo venezia", dreaming of Venice will overcome the present troubles.
And become a the city everybody wants to live in - again.
As I was sailing on Canal Grande I dreamt of having a studio in one of those houses.
"il nuovo venezia"

I know that you might feel that the sculpture is erected in an impossible place.
Yes, in the middle of the historical buildings.
To do the impossible.
Please give me some feedback - and
give me a hint of where to start fund raising in order to built the sculpture.
