Sons of Cronos 7
When I was seven or eight years old my family visited Pompeii, where the adult men were shown certain mysterious murals while the women and children waited in the ancient street. My circumspect father never told me what they were. Though I’ve seen Roman frescoes in reproduction, and have a number of books about them, I still long to be in their presence.
These works on paper combine acrylics, printmaking inks, and graphite to celebrate the iconic splendor of men, marrying the extraordinary faces of “ordinary” people to classic themes in an attempt to recapture those unseen paintings, those vanished ancient lives, and to preserve ours. After the overthrow of Cronos, Zeus ruled the sky, Poseidon the seas, and Hades the underworld.
I am always hoping to make something beautiful.
