Artist's description:

This is a pun based on the ancient Goddess Tethys of Greek mythology. Tethys was the daughter of Uranus (Heaven) and Gaia (Earth) and could be interpreted as a symbol for the human being (mind and matter). From the Gothic onwards (an Art style inspiring my painting), humans have slowly been substituting entertainment for spirituality. We pray to new gods today, and one of them is called Distraction and is symbolised by the famous Tetris game.

I used various materials to create texture: wood shavings (for the bottom part), gold leaf imitation (top part) with various techniques of applying it, palette knife for scraping, glazing mediums, etc.

Materials used:

plywood panel, acrylic paints, matt and glossy medium, gold leaf imitation (schlagmetal), mordant for gilding, wood shavings
