Equilibrium of the senses Status Quo The Encounter

Equilibrium of the senses: oil

Status Quo: oil

The Encounter: oil

This work was inspired by the Art and Architecture of the Classical Period, which was a search for a timeless beauty of perfect form, structural relationships and mathematical proportion... ballance, serenity and calm.

Much of the imagery, in this gallery, is derived from studies done in Rome, Pompeii and Herculaneum...  Pompeii figures, overwhelmed and resurrected; the monumental ruins, colour and texture, shards and fragments … A peeling away of Time.
