Hide, Perseus! by Keelan McMorrow

Perseus slew Medusa, the gorgan, by protecting his eyes from her petrifying gaze with a shield so polished he was able to gauge her presence by the reflection upon it’s surface….
Sometimes artists hide behind thier work, presenting the world with constructions of themselves and their visions. Art for me is often a shield- both a reflection and deflection that helps me in this world and enables me to conquer it’s worst.
Original work was completed in watermedia on Arches cold-press cotton rag.

    There are a few versions of the Perseus and Medusa story..I always liked this one best.
    Beautiful as usual, love the drops on the body (were you scared doing those?) and the subtle geometric patterns in the background.
