I was a little girl during the war in Germany. It was only later that I saw the ruins of the Kölner Dom and the town itself. My intention with this piece is to recreate what I saw then.
Drawing inspiration from photographs of the devastation in Germany after World War II, I decided to create a symbolic window for the Kölner Dom. This piece combines silk-screening, photography, glass-painting, and the shards to create an image of the bombed-out cathedral. The pink sky is to suggest a new day of hope.
