The Anastylosis Project began in 1998 as 100 small drawings of details of Roman ruins and Romanesque and Gothic cathedrals in France and Italy. The intimacy of the details quite literally drew me into a conversation with the buildings, and I became intrigued by the physical, emotional, intellectual, and spiritual experience of sacred spaces.
Over the years the intimate drawings have given way to large-scale meditations on the experience of 11th and 12th century CE religious buildings. It was the dawn of the Age of Faith, and in cultures across the globe, beautiful and mysterious monuments rose. To date the Anastylosis Project includes twelve large drawings that can be seen at marygriep.com.
