I am delighted to show tonight in an old favorite, Trentatres Cafe & Galeria in Calle Sueca 33! The opening is from 7pm-10pm and the show will continue on till the end of January!
The work I will be showing is work I have produced this year, where I have been exploring myths and facts of places and animals related to death! I also have been experimenting with new techniques in painting and drawing using oils and charcoal as a medium!
“Around the world, the crow has been associated with war, death, the Otherworld, or as a cunning trickster not to be trusted. Despite this, there has also been a grudging acknowledgement of its intelligence.
In Irish mythology, the crow is seen as a manifestation of the Morrigan (in Irish, Mór-ríoghain), meaning phantom/great Queen. She was a deity signifying ‘battle, strife and sovereignty’, a harbinger of war and death, who spoke of the battlefield as ‘her garden’.
It was said that she would often fly above a battle, her cry bringing courage and encouragement to her warriors, whilst simultaneously striking fear into the hearts of the enemy. Sometimes she would join in the battle in her human form.”
