Collection > KARL VOUK


Stainles steel

In 2007, at the roundabout in close proximity to the necropolis of the late-Antiquity Roman settlement Colatione, the Carinthian painter and architect placed a negative relief, which schematically depicts findings from the nearby Antiquity tombs from the 3rd and 4th century BC that are a testament to the greatness of the important post station near the main Roman road from former Celeia to Virun in the Zollfeld plain, today’s Austrian Carinthia. The rocket that is launching into the sky in the upper margin of the relief is a symbolic link of the ancient past with our time and the future. When preparing the memorial, Karl Vouk also created a cycle of paintings with the common title Colatio, which he presented in 2009 at the Carinthian Regional Museum in Slovenj Gradec.
