Shadows of history
Updated: Apr 12
The Town Hall where I live (Marathon) organised a 2 days artistic event where, together with a few other artists, we were invited to create a painting on 2 local archaeological sites. I picked the archaeological site of Ramnous (where the temple of Nemesis is located) and did my thing. All the paintings were exhibited in the Archaeological museum of Vrana.
The painting took me approximately 3 days to complete. It’s one of the fastest I have ever done and only the second landscape without a human or any animal presence on it.
Shadows of history | Oil on wood - 50 x 110 cm (19,6"x 43,3") | Original available
«In that place there is no shadow without a soul. If you sit silently on these remains, you will hear the rage of Nemesis.»
Some closeups of the painting:
This short video was taken on the exhibition site, which to be honest had no adequate lighting to show the artworks. Mine had a sunny window behind it!...
If you are interested in buying this one-of-a-kind authentic original painting let me know. Giclée prints are also available. Giclée prints are signed by me and sold with a Certificate of Authenticity as well.
