‘…Front and center in each is what de Carbuccia calls a Time Shrine, which she has built using whatever materials come to hand, importing just two elements, venerable symbols both, an hourglass and a skull. As much as with the religious and political art of the past, each of de Carbuccia’s pictures is on message, each one tells a story, each is balanced on an edge between hope and despair, and God knows each is a story that urgently needs telling.’
