My new series of meter-high sepia watercolors of the Parthenon Frieze will be on display with Pierre Passebon and the Galerie du Passage at the Pavillion of Art and Design Fair in Berkeley Square W1, London, England, from October 3 – October 9, 2016.

This series is inspired by travels to Athens where I saw the bas-relief fragments that had remained on the Parthenon for 100 years longer than those at the British Museum, now displayed in the Acropolis Museum… Not heavily cleaned or restored, the slabs remain hauntingly abstracted and stained by years of erosion.

Here are two more from the series of five:
