JAN COX - THE FALL OF TROY

SOME CULTURE...

Oil paints on panels (1978)

“The Fall Of Troy” is the last work in a cycle of fifty on the theme of Homer’s Iliad. This series evokes the themes of war, violence and death. The colours and shapes convey strong emotions, internal collisions and the tragic division of a doomed artist who expresses an energetic protest against this absurdity called war. “The Fall of Troy” unites everything that characterises his work: the figurative part, the elements charged with symbolism, the heavily pictorial abstract parts, the colour and the brushstrokes. The work of art is mostly in shades of blue, with a clearly visible skull. Behind it and beside it, on the left, flames roar up, increasing the atmosphere of disaster. The red circle could refer to the setting sun or a destructive fireball or it could be considered as a warning in a more general, abstract sense.
