Art Description

Painting: Acrylic on Canvas.

This piece is one of a new and ongoing series of works in acrylics on canvas. My primary influence with this series is from the old fortification plans of Maréchal Vauban (1633-1707), the French general and engineer who planned the defences of some 160 strategic towns and coastal sites in France, plus more in other countries. 

Here I have created a deliberately confusing interpretation of one of his basic ideas and turned his “impregnable fortress” design features into a confusing set of walls and passages… as in a maze without a safe and sure direction of progress. If Vauban's works were ever to be breached and destroyed they may have looked shattered, like this, from above.
