Artist's Description


The evening folds about itself the dark
Garments the old trees hold out to it.
You watch: and the lands are borne from you,
One soaring heavenward, one falling
;

And leave you here, not wholly either’s,
Not quite so darkened as the silent houses,
Not quite so surely summoning the eternal
As that which each night becomes star, and rises
;

And leave you (inscrutably to unravel)
Your life: the fearful and ripening and enormous
Being that…bounded by everything, or boundless..
For a moment becomes stone, for a moment stars
.
Rainer Maria Rilke

A new addition to the Cityscape Collection, this work was inspired by a 110 year old postcard.. on a the quiet night, a lady traveller arrives at a small town…..in those days ladies rarely travelled on their own but some intrepid hearts did penetrate the outer reaches of the world…

Styled slightly differently from the previous cityscape, but the same crooked lines, unfinished areas and the general feeling of primitive work proliferate…Mixed Media…Gouache, Pastel and Calli on Handmade Paper
