Description

Oil Paint on canvas, stretched and ready to hang

Signed on the front

This work shows the ruins of the Persian city of Persepolis (in modern-day Iraq) that was eventually destroyed by Alexander the Great. The reference to song/music came from the placement of the various decorative elements that jut in from the edges of the painting‚ equating to the various musical notes and layers that take place within a song. The idea of memory stems from the impression given by the ruins that memories are all that remained for those in the aftermath of destruction.
