Archive > Rome Reimagined, Jeremy Elkington

The works presented in Rome Reimagined celebrate the majesty, colour, opulence, complexity and beauty of Ancient Roman architecture, ornament, armour and representations of emperors and generals. Many are underscored by the archaic and sublime nature of Middle Eastern desert landscapes which have long served as the foundation of the artist's paintings and in these works serve as a vast stage for the various Ancient Roman elements.

The works aim to avoid a specific narrative but rather speaks of something broader: the resonance of past lives, relationships, actions and tragedies which permeate the supposed emptiness of the desert and lead to contemplation on the themes of love, hope, loss, isolation, euphoria, tragedy, triumph, melancholy, adventure and reflection.

Exhibition runs from 6pm, 1st of April - 3pm, 14th of April 2016.
