A seamless composition comprising more than 70 original transparencies photographed in various corners of the globe.

'Under Construction' is a comment on the nature of belief and, as the title implies, contends that humanity's various belief systems are - at best - merely ongoing works in progress. It was inspired by the cultural shock of moving to a Buddhist society after more than forty years spent living in Western Europe.

The Buddhist temple that forms the back drop for this intriguing image is called 'The Sanctuary of Truth' located in Eastern Thailand. It is made entirely of hand-carved wood and is itself permanently under construction.


"Dominic Rouse's art goes further than a prosaic depiction of our world.  
It undermines our reason and logic and forces us to challenge what we have claimed as 'beauty'.  
And beyond the subtle textures of his exquisite prints lies that art; 
dark in tone and rich in the symbols of the unexpected - 
ornate silver tableaux of undeclared meaning." 
David Genovesi - ArtRom Gallery - Italy

Hand-signed in black ink, a numbered gallery stamp is printed on the back of each print.
