Painting - Acrylic On Board
The Colosseum in Rome is a symbol of two distinct things: The tasteless product of a tasteless age and a great functional machine to help govern the people. Today�s tourist probably doesn�t think much about the ancient amphitheatre as a venue for entertainment, they are more receptive to its secondary functions as a symbol of paganism, classicism and the empire.
I was brought up in Chester, a Roman city with its own amphitheatre, and as a consquence of being surrounded by relics of ancient history I have a fascination for Roman and Greek architecture. I love to visit and record the variations on arena and amphitheatre dotted around the Mediterranean.
