watercolour and ink with gold and silver pigments. Depicting themes of identity crisis metamorphosis, spending half the time in a surreal landscape where gender roles are assigned by a hidden devil that hides in the small details of society. The sacrificial knife represents the cult of sacrificing parts of oneself for a beautiful image and the way this actually imprisons so that one always feels they are living on a knifes edge of their identity and hemmed in by the lack of opportunities for alternative expression. Influenced also by the myth of Persephone the daughter of Demeter (goddess of summer and harvest). Persephone was abducted by her uncle Hades and taken to the underworld, while there she ate a single seed of a pomegranate and for this she would stay half her life in the underworld. In summer she is on the surface for 6 months and then when she goes back to the underworld Demeter brings the winter months for 6 months of the year.
