Detail of Places Where We have Been 1
The work is a chronicle of the experience of the individual in public spaces. The pattern and color, although deviating from the original image, simplify and reduce description of the space, which endures as a record of human experience; emphasizing notions of fate, the sublime, isolation, dream, memory, vision and history.
