About The Artwork

The city where people had learned what forgiveness was. The idea for this etching originated during a visit to Dresden. This city made a huge impression on me. You feel the past very strongly but also the vitality and resilience of the people who live there. The city is a symbol of reconciliation despite the right-wing extremism, which is also very clearly present. The rebuilding of the Frauenkirche was funded by Germans, Jews from America, British and people around the world. The cross on the church was made by the son of a British pilot who bombed the city. I myself was raised by parents with a war trauma and I realize that forgiveness is the only way to live together. Often a whole generation goes through this. In this etching you see different times in one image. The bombed city, the rebuilding of the Frauenkirche and vague in the distance the future. Because there is always a future if we can forgive each other.

Annemarie Petri (The Hague, the Netherlands, 1965) is a very versatile artist, experienced in painting, sculpting, and etching. She uses her impressive technical skill to evoke a picturesque and melancholy world all of her own. Her artistic range within this theme is wide, from bizarre to humorous, from alien to familiar. The loving concentration with which she creates her meticulous pictures is remarkable.
