The exquisite muse of sorrow
HSC year: 2013, ARTEXPRESS year: 2014
Expressive form: Painting
My work, The exquisite muse of sorrow, explores the beauty and danger of cancer. The aim of the work is to catch the audience’s attention, to make people wonder and take a second look at the contrasts created by painting with glitter. Cancer is a subject close to me, through the loss of family members and my own personal battle with this disease. I wanted to demonstrate the beauty within such an ugly disease through my interpretation and the twists that occur between subject matter and materials.
Influencing artist: Reuben Paterson
