The Last Artist
by J.A. Wainwright
Confronted by his own mortality and that of his paintings, artist Ben Sand reproduces several modern masterpieces on the walls of an isolated French cave so they will last for 20,000 years. His efforts are mirrored by those of a Paleolithic girl, An, in her own cave.
The result is enduring images of visual brilliance framed by lived experience that has its own place and longevity in time.
