Myth of Danae (study 54)

I map out my artistic journey from the printed digital photography of my body and hair that I manipulate with drawing, painting and sewing my own hair into the canvas. The embroidery hoop acts as my drawing board as I simultaneously work the various mediums across the textured surface. Steeped in myth, history and the natural world I am exploring my physical and emotional relationship of these themes as both subject and voyeur. I do not want to portray the mythical tale
of Danae, I have totally inhabited her.
