Ariadne – Arianna Barzacanos


Oil on Canvas 

Ariadne, I painted a statue of Ariadne, the Cretan princess and Goddess of Labyrinths and Paths. Though she takes form in marble, and only existed in mythological terms, her sleeping position elucidates her inherent and intrinsic humanity.

As H.J. Rose defines myth; “the result of the working of naive imagination upon the facts of experience.”
