Cordova, Spain: Ancient Voices: Standing in the nave of the Mezquita-Catedral de Cordoba and listening to the all-encompassing pipe organ moved me. Built first as a mosque, the chanting of Moslem voices dominated for 700 years. When the region was conquered by the Pope, the mosque was not razed as was customary, but a Roman Catholic nave was built in the center of the mosque. Thus, the intermingling Muslim and Christian VOICES mixed in spirit, inspiring me to create Las Mezquita and the city Cordoba, past and present, that surrounds it. Revisiting this piece in 2018, I painted it to add luster and contrast. 30″w x 32″h
