All of my ‘Ruin-Lust’ works explore this idea of needing destruction as much as creation. Many of the surviving artefacts from ancient Rome and Greece are no longer intact. Sculpted images, for example, are missing limbs or facial features.
These losses reflect their personal history. They are also an intrinsic part of their beauty and continuing appeal.
