Colonnades
22" x 30"
Watercolor
$  1,600.00
 
     The Leaning Tower of Pisa shimmers on the edge of extinction. The Romanesque colonnades vault against the sky already resembling the fossilized rib cage of a prehistoric creature. A thin facade of marble creates ambiguous forms and spaces that allow some latitude on how we read them. A leaning tower and a prehistoric rib cage all at once -- showing us a two-in-one image.
     To create the texture of the bell tower and the sense of ancient bones, I allowed drops of water to attack the pigment and push it. This technique formed edges created by the water and paint evaporating.
