NECROPOLIS

I’m always taken by the layers of time that exist simultaneously in Italy. It seems that the past cannot be erased, and repressed, as it is here in the United States. In Italy, we lived in a Medieval village, in a 15th century palazzo. The cathedral there housed beautiful Renaissance frescos. Elements of the Roman Empire and the Baroque also punctuate and inform whatever is contemporary. These artifacts, that span millennia, from 700 BC until the present, provoke a richer, deeper sense of existence. Perhaps one becomes more humble realizing that the ground underfoot isn’t as ‘young’ as once assumed. In this bigger perspective, a single life becomes both less significant, and more important. In Italy, I feel invited to be more present, to inhabit the time that is now.

 

The Necropolis prints are 17” on the long dimension. However, they can be printed in other sizes.
