Acrylic and oil on canvas

100 x 200 cm


Refined over years of contemplation on the Greek myth of Danae and her sealed fate, the artist plays with composition and medium here. While the painting readapts Renaissance compositions of the greek myth, the cultivated depiction of Danae’s figure and her subdued expression are not lost on the contemporary artist. Inspired by Cretan volcanic stone and the warm tones of Greek pottery, the dignified subject is painted in earthy shades, accented in red while she accepts her destiny as a shower of gold cascades upon her.
