Story of the artwork:
Eurydice and Orpheus diptych. ("Eurydice freeing herself" and "to join her love Orpheus"). In these two aquarelle paintings, I aimed to visualize greek mythology through a different, modern angle. Here, Eurydice is an independent woman. She doesn't care whether Hades wants her or not to stay in the underworld. She stole Cerberus and follows her love, Orpheus, determined. Mythology, like History, is very often glorifying masculine heroes and forgetting women. Here, the real hero is not Orpheus, but Eurydice (compared to Heracles in his 12 works because of Cerberus).
