Whispered Messages and Passion

Whispers

Acrylic on Canvas

500mm x 1000mm

I’ve been using fabric to convey messages about what it means human at the most basic.  Life, love, loss, memory.  Fabric concealing and revealing who we are.

Another message carrier was Iris.  The beautiful young Greek Goddess dressed in multicolored clothes and rode the wind to bring messages to mortals. She married Zephyrus who was the god of the west wind, and their son was Pothos,  passion.

The word iridescence is derived in part from the name of this goddess, and the iris of the eye is named after her as she was the goddess of the rainbow, to reflect the many colours of the eye.
