The Art League – August emBODY Art Exhibit 2023

with No Comments

My painting Actaeon (48×36″ mixed media on wood panel) from my Perspective Series was selected by Ahrong Kim, juror for the August emBODY Exhibit at The Art League, Alexandria, VA.

Inspired by Greek mythology—Actaeon the hunter became the hunted, watching the goddess of hunters, Artemis (Roman Diana), bathing—he was transformed into a stag by the goddess. This story is the iconic motif by which Actaeon is recognized in ancient art and Renaissance and post-Renaissance depictions. I portrayed him as a contemporary superhero while preserving the antique and Renaissance appeal as part of my Perspective series. The sun also plays a vital role in balancing the composition and further establishing the ancient pagan mood (sun worship).
