The savage events of 911 inspired Nick Maley to create this extraordinary visual statement.The twin towers, silhouetted in wondrous starlight seem so vulnerable in the jaws of destruction. But from the 911 tragedy the MIGHT of the eagle takes flight. He also wrote the following prose to go with it...
In the darkness of my raging heart... I will remember.
In the vacuum of
your broken lives,
I wonder why?
In the morning,
In the evening,
and in long nights
of silent thoughts,
I feel your absence.
in a cloak
If any act could prove
the futility of hate
this would be it.
As the resolve of millions
upon the tears

"Nothing anyone says will ever cushion the blow of that terrible day", says Nick . "This appalling act of terrorism touched the hearts of thinking souls around the world. It was not just an attack on the US. It was an attack on the economies of all those nations who look to the US for income and inspiration. Citizens of many countries died there... even some from my tiny island home. This work is both a memorial to those who died and a celebration of the undaunted spirit that arose from the ashes. There is an intrinsic darkness in the consumption of so many lives and yet much more power in the determination to prevail."
Nick's first tribute to 911 was a photo composite done within weeks of the tragedy. All income from that tribute went to the disaster fund.
Nick's painted memorial took a year to conceive and execute. Now he PERSONALLY produces this historic trubute in a series of archival giclees on his own in house giclee press. He is adamant that he doesn't want to profit from the 911 tragedy and HEAVILY discounts thisNick extraordinary image.
