Art Description

Painting: Acrylic, charcoal on Wood.

"Ctesiphon", 2014, acrylic and charcoal on fiberboard panel. A statement about history, both the persistence of ideas and artifacts, and also the way vast sweeps of time renders human enterprises anonymous and ambiguous. (For almost a hundred years, not long after the fall of the western Roman Empire, the mesopotamian city of Ctesiphon was the largest city in the world, capital of two Persian empires. Today, only rubble remains.)
