St.Petri Dom

St.Petri Dom / 16” x 24” / Oil on canvas / 2008

Buildings serve many purposes including an aesthetic and sentimental one. Here, I wanted to take inanimate structures and covey two different kinds of moods with varying colour tones and a worm's eye perspective. My inspiration was Monet's 'Rouen Cathedral' series; as well as what cathedrals symbolize in terms of marriage. I took the term 'through thick and thin' said in many wedding vows and translated it into the colours of a warm sunny day (thick) and a cold night (thin).
