Lodz

Detail of ‘Łódź’, a small ‪#‎painting‬ based on a large abandoned pier I once saw jutting out into the water. Łódź means ‘boat’ in Polish, and is the name of a Polish city in which the Łódź Ghetto had been established following the 1939 invasion. This pier, the rotting brick building, and a boat which will never come has resulted from the stories I’ve read of Łódź.
