My latest Photograph and entry into the Taranaki Arts Trail Exhibition 2016.
Titled “The rejection of sleeping Ariadne”.
A 3rd century BC Roman copy of an ancient Greek sculpture of Ariadne.
Ariadne awoke from her peaceful slumber to find herself abandoned and rejected by her lover, Theseus, according to Greek mythology. This sculpture captures her final moment of peace before she wakes and realises the devastating betrayal that has occurred.
She is left to dream alone…rejected then by her lover and now, it also appears, the public.
