Nereids Join (III)

In my Nereids series of paintings, a tiny pair of luminous elven-like figures explore at my behest distant lands, seas and sky, the underworld and the tops of mountains; they are the agents of my empathetic imagination.  The fifty Nereids of Greek mythology were gentle, unremarkable maidens who lived at the bottom of the sea.  In my work they exemplify the humility needed to understand, to connect.

“Nereids Join La Danse” I, II, and III, with a nod to Henri Matisse in particular, celebrate artists of integrity great and small. They will be on display at the Isabel Bader Centre, Art and Media Lab, Queen’s University in Kingston, Canada (March 16-27) as part of the exhibit “The Politics of the Artist’s Footprint” https://www.facebook.com/events/125247775582098/
