Artwork description:

I discovered these columns in a park in Barnsley. They had been removed from a building in the town when it was demolished.

I imagined the columns would look good in a desert setting. I had witnessed sandstorms in the Gobi dessert and seen the way dunes were formed. Placing the columns in a desert scene connected them with antiquity where they belong. I used artistic licence in showing one of the pediment broken. In Victorian iconography a broken pediment signified loss. This adds an additional element to the romantic feel of the scene.

The painting is best hung without a frame as it is a deep canvas, the painted image wraps around the sides of the canvas which are integral
to the painting.
