  • Medea (2014) oil on canvas, 50x60

    The artwork realized in 2014 represents Medea, a mythological character who gives the title to the famous Greek tragedy of Euripides. Medea is one of the most significant figures in Greek mythology. Described as a perfidious woman, Euripides gave her back her human face by capturing in Medea the drama of despair that leads to madness. It represents the revenge of love and at the same time the victim of betrayal. Medea's drama centers on love for Jason, a love that, once betrayed, will push her to the tragic end of matricide. Endowed with human feeling Medea is nevertheless the heroine of suffering but also a being of mysterious and divine origins: numerous episodes within the tradition refer to her magical arts. Behind her figure lies the face of a famous iconic woman.
