Manipulated Fall of Column on Sand, 2013. Oil and acrylic on linen; 27 x 100 cm
Blitz' background and continued interest in archaeology translates in the subject matter of this piece.
In the fallen column paintings he depicts time through drums that once formed a standing column but now are laying on the ground. The calculated progression in the trajectory of their fall, the color choice and straight cut of each drum render an almost abstract quality to these two paintings.
