metamorphoses

splash

“The Roman poet Ovid wrote an epic by the name of Metamorphoses, wherein he wove together Greek, Roman, and older myths into one reasonably cohesive narrative. Its general theme is, unsurprisingly, metamorphosis; physical transformation as the last and most powerful expression of some sort of internal sea change.

This project deals with the under- and misrepresentation of the epic’s female characters, who are portrayed as either disempowered or mad, frequently even monstrous. It is a reinterpretation of these twelve stories, and an attempt at reappropriation.

This was my Final Major Project in the 3rd year of my Illustration degree.”

Things that make her happy include alliterations, beards, deserts, kittens, mechanical pencils, oxford commas, rooftops, sestinas, spaceships, and tall grass.
