Civitates

“John Bailly examines the relationship of place and time in his many multi-layered compositions. The artist’s works often depict cities derived from ancient maps and atlases that have either been decisive in shaping world history, conquered culturally or militarily, or were literally destroyed. His imagery is also derived from sources such as religion, history, wars and science. The over-arching idea of man’s self-annihilation is persistently evident in Bailly’s oeuvre.” —George Kinghorn
