For my painting, I have re-imagined the hideous gorgon and restored Medusa’s youthful beauty and innocence. I have also given her a hashtag stigmata; a merging of Greek, Christian and Contemporary iconography.

*Athena is cast as one of the evil ones in this story, isn’t she? Well, fear not, future paintings and blogs will also address THAT myth too… the myth of the powerful queen who does everything she can to keep other women down.

It desperately needs retelling…and that’s just what I’ll be doing in the coming months! Stay tuned!
