Mythology

The female characters featured in the Bible & Greek & Roman mythology were often stereotyped or mistreated in ways that still occur today.

These self portraits aim to give power back to these women by confroting the viewer directly & presenting them with alternative interpretations of the stories. The strong lighting and composition draws from the chiaroscuro technique of the Renaissance period, whose paintings frequently depicted these stories.
