ORIGINAL 1 OF 1 – THE CONCEPT BEHIND THE PAINTING
The colosseum in Rome dates back to 70AD and shows the best & worst of humanity. It’s walls resonate with gladiatorial conquests, slavery & death. It also depicts human ingenuity, endeavour and architectural magnificence.
In Rome the Colosseum is engulfed in the chaos of traffic, buildings and people.
I have chosen to place it in the quiet harmony of nature.
I HAVE RETIRED THE COLOSSEUM!!
