Will your work last?

Will your work last? December 2, 2014

This is the ninth in a series of ten posts featuring artwork from the Christians in the Visual Arts exhibit, “Work: Curse or Calling?” Many thanks to Margot Rogers and CIVA for allowing us to feature these beautiful, intriguing, and challenging pieces here at MISSION:WORK.  Please check out CIVA’s website for more information on scheduling the exhibit for your own church, school, or workplace, and to see the other images from the exhibit (there are 28 in all.)  Today’s featured work is:

The Pyramid of Cestus, Rome
Mark Phillip Venema (Montreal, Quebec)
Archival pigment print
18” x 36”

Mark Venma’s The Pyramid of Cestus, Rome is a “triptych of time, change, ephemerality and permanence” that invites consideration on the nature of work, “its calling or its shadowing curse.”
