Vesuvius Remembered (Vesuvius Series)
This is part of a large continuing series that tributes the tragic victims of Mount Vesuvius and the lost cities of Pompeii and Herculaneum. Enveloped suddenly by the burning ash of volcanic explosion, many were discovered centuries later fossilized within an eternal embrace to find some haven from this cataclysmal event. This series is not to exploit their great anguish and death, but to reflect upon the compassion they sought within each other in their final moments of life.
Created simply with a single divine light, a layering of Dead Sea mud, gently sifted ashes and “Proverb” by Steve Reich.
This series premiered at my solo exhibition “III - An Exhibition Trinity” on 11/11/11.
