On Having Left YouBy Matthew Woodward

The work included in On Having Left You is concerned with classical elements of European architecture as they have been reappropriated and recontextualized in the ever-changing interconnected landscapes of the American city and identity. The architecture of Renaissance Rome, like its American counterpart, recontextualizes the symbols of an earlier classical age in the service of a new identity, and its preservation allows us to see how classical ideals function as they move through the time and space of everyday lives. The work investigates new monuments to a timeless conversation, situated at the interstice of the eternal and the ephemeral.
