'From Here To Antiquity' (2014) - Exhibition Montage

At the end of 2013 I was invited to travel to Greece with an archeological survey team doing a study of the ancient site of Troizen in the Peloponnese. I worked on location as an artist making studies of the site’s artefacts, history, excavation and landscape. This exhibition titled 'From Here To Antiquity - Studies from ancient Troizen and wider Greece' incorporates work completed in Troizen as well as drawings and etchings of other Greek antiquities witnessed on my later travels throughout Europe. The nearly 40 works include graphite drawings, pen and ink work, watercolour painting and a number of etchings. The works were exhibited at 'Australian Galleries' in Sydney in November 2014. The video is ideally viewed in full screen at 1080p HD (high definition) mode.
