Artist's description:

This piece is based on Dante Gabriel Rossetti's Proserpine of 1874. It deals with the subject of mortality but not just human fragility and life and death but that of a way of thinking – symbolised by the overly romanticised version of life immortalised, or indeed created by the thoroughly modern pre-raphaelites, which has all but disappeared from contemporary representations today. As such a romanticised time immortalised in pre-raphaelite imagery was doubtful even to existed, the piece is intended as a playful comment on the modern condition and the extinction of past ideals. The piece is unframed and painted on board with high gloss acrylics.

Materials used:

acrylic, varnish, texture
