Artwork description
Origin

Fleury Epinat's artwork portrays a vivacious landscape juxtaposed with the remnants of a cathedral. The artist adeptly captures a mystical yet barren ambience throughout the scene.Read more

By illuminating the dilapidated architectural intricacies with dark shadows and varied levels of illumination, the artwork leaves a lasting impression of grand decay. In addition, the ruins of the cathedral appear to nurture new life, possibly in the form of animals or individuals who are wandering about.

This contrast between destruction and the tenacity of life presents a poignant and thoughtful view on the passing of time and the determination of life amidst devastation.
