Medusa - the slaughtered Woman
"Medusa - the slaughtered Woman" by Louise Hapton, a painting from the Mythological Series
By painting this piece, the artist really wanted to emphasize how masculine-centred the mythological texts are written. Medusa is seen as a monster in most reinterpretations but to Louise, she is a feminist icon, as Perseus represents a the peak of patriarchy. She resisted. She fell. She was slaughtered.
This artwork is a manifesto against feminicides.
