This work explores themes of sacrifice, and dissonance between identity and reality. I use visual symbolism to weave a story inspired by the mythological Medea, wife of Jason (of Jason and the Argonauts). The pose of the figure is directly taken from the sculpture housed at the Met, which depicts a darkly contemplative moment before Medea makes the decision to murder her children to enact vengeance on her faithless husband.The composition of the work is meant to suggest that we are looking into a mirror, as Medea. I ask the viewer to consider what their decision would be, when choosing whether or not to destroy a part of themselves, out of bitterness.
