Vault Upon Vault, Endlessly - Vaults & Arches Series 2022

Acrylic paint, Ink, metallic powders on organic cotton, mounted onto board.

This painting is part of a series of paintings inspired by a poem called Romanesque Arches by Swedish poet Tomas Tranströmer. It’s my favourite poem and so incredibly beautiful …

Tourists have crowded into the half dark of the enormous Romanesque church
Vault opening behind vault and no perspective.
A few candle flames flickered.
An angel whose face I couldn’t see embraced me
and his whisper went all through my body. ‘Don’t be ashamed to be a human being be proud!
Inside you one vault after another opens endlessly. 
You’ll never be complete and that’s as it should be’
Tears blinded me
as we were herded out into the fiercely sunlit piazza, together with Mr and Mrs Jones, Herr Tanaka and signora Sabatini;
within each of them vault after vault opened endlessly.
 

There are 2 secure wires on the back to it can be hung horizontally or vertically as required,  but this is big and heavy so I recommend either 2 hanging points or a very deep set hook or other secure method.
