519 Minotaur.jpg

GRAPHITE WORK

Inspired by the Iliad and the Odyssey

We are entitled to ask why should Homer, the Iliad, and the Odyssey matter in the 21st Century. That is because their description of war and suffering talk through the ages to a humanity that is still fighting the same battles, in the same places, and with the same addiction to spilling blood. I call war the time traveller, for it is the only concept we know which has indeed travelled through time and still resonates today.
