Art Description

Painting: Acrylic, Collage on Canvas.

"From the Faithless Time", 2018, acrylic and cut paper on canvas, 24 x 30 in (60 x 75 cm). The title comes from the the closing lines of the poem "Santorini" by George Seferis, whose title refers to the volcano that brought about the end of the great Minoan empire:

"... allow your hand, if you can, to travel
free yourself from the faithless time
and sink,
sink whoever raises the great stones."

(From "Santorini", George Seferis, 1935; English translation by Keeley and Sherrard, 1964)

Painted paper is cut and collaged over a background of grays; the birds are cut from old map pages and painted and pasted down. The entire painting is sprayed lightly with a UV protectant and sealed with several thin layers of acrylic polymer medium. This picture is framed in black, ready to hang.
