Church Architecture Art Prints

Using sketches, photos, and memories from my years living and working in Italy, I embarked upon a decade of drawing, painting and creating prints of sacred architecture. They have been  exhibited in solo and group shows in commercial, university, and non-profit spaces, published in several artistic and literary journals, and acquired by both university and private collections.

The exteriors of local churches shape the landscape of daily life-about-town, but it is their interiors which have helped shape spiritual lives for centuries. In Europe, cavernous sacred spaces were built for throngs of religious activity, but now hold only shadows of those presences. The shapes of archways reaching towards heaven, the rhythm of dark and light passing through complex spaces inspire a sense of quiet awe and shadowy mystery. Though they were intended to be centers of civic and religious life, they often retain only vestiges of that importance in community life. They are also an evocative metaphor for our own interior lives – that place where there is only listening and waiting in the darkness.

Like the structures that inspired them, my paintings are layered, image covering image, sometimes sanded or scraped away so that the painting itself becomes a palimpsest of history like the ancient buildings, addressing the tension between the permanent and the passing.
