A few weeks ago, I visited Bernardi Roig’s studio (a former wine cellar) and home, both from the 16th century. This was in preparation for his elaborate Intersections project scheduled for the fall of 2014, when we’ll have his works dispersed throughout the Phillips and outside the building. I took some photos of the artist in his studio and of his beautiful home for your viewing pleasure and to give you a sneak peek as to what you can expect from his 2014 exhibition. The artist promised to send homemade wine form Mallorca for his opening, so watch for the event in November 2014!

Saludos and hasta pronto!
