LIVING MY GAP YEAR

Another Homemade Postcard

Zuzu Tadeushuk

On my flight home from Italy last month, I painted this postcard (in the dark cause the reading light at my seat didn't work and every one else was sleeping). It's a rough imitation of the Basilica of San Nicola in Bari, which had come to be the hub and intersection, heart and soul of my stay in that town. Unreligious but not atheistic, I've always felt a permeating wonder for religious art of all kinds, and the deep tradition that attends it, and the way it circumscribes a culture. So the Basilica, aside from being a convenient spot to hang around a stone's throw from my Aribnb, was a cache of fascinations, and especially enjoyable because it is dedicated to Saint Nicholas, my childhood favorite (the one who leaves chocolate in your shoe in December--at least in Germany or Scandinavia, or here if you're the child of the child of a Scandinavian)!
