Artist Statement

As an admirer of Greek mythology, my practice aims to bring forth its importance as a foundation of our modern culture. The traditional style of painting seen in the Old Master’s work is distilled and refined in this painting. The block colour and obscured oil paint blur the lines between the past and the present.

Inspired by Jacques-Louis David ‘Psyche Abandoned’ and his choice of colours, ‘Psyche’ was a beautiful princess whose looks captures the Ancient Greek god Eros who fell in love with her. When Psyche disobeyed his orders not to gaze upon his divine body, he fled from her.
