Plaza Monument

2006
Ink, gouache & coloured pencil on paper in artist's frame

33 x 41 cm

Bronstein’s Plaza Monument is a proposal for a classical piazza. Whilst drawing from the Italian traditions of perspective and geometric purity, his quotes range from Renaissance design to modern masters such as Aldo Rossi. Executed in watery ink, Bronstein’s plan conveys his monument with an ephemeral elegance, framing the imposing as delicate opus. Conceiving the public space as theatre, Bronstein curtains his edifice with a decorative frieze; the subtle angular shadow infringes on the arena with an impending drama reminiscent of De Chirico.
