“Dreaming of Babel”, Alexandre Mitchell, 2022
(Canson 180g, 42 x 59 cm, Indian ink)
After much research, some travel and many sleepless nights, I am proud to present “Dreaming of Babel”.
Brueghel’s Tower of Babel (Kunsthistorisches museum in Vienna) is my pathway to the stars.
I had a vision of the tower rising from the city of Venice at night and chose the permanence of Indian ink to draw it, building by building, stone by stone, between light and shadow.
