Pieced together of hand-painted panels of cotton muslin, this monolith draws its title from a quote by Maxime Cologne, one of the first archaeologists to document evidence of polychromy in Greco-Roman sculpture and architecture. The color approximates my own experience of light falling on Greek temple ruins in Agrigento, Sicily as the day ended. The monolithic structure is part of a series examining post-and-lintel architecture—the post’s symbolic significance as the original support, and the predecessor of the column. The seams cause breaks in the composition that I liken to the division of time into units.
