María Callas - Self portrait series

A study of illusion and reality, parody, humour and humanity

In this feinin,I found myself faced with a legend, a goddess if you like. A spirit that was encased in a nest of gems, gold, platinum and rubies, yet was as fragile as glass. In this self portrait, I saw the footing of a (stone) presence, a moving force where I could flick away my admirers. (And a voice, not of me), but a voice that could capacitive, screeching, epic, so soft.

It's funny and so revealing, I primmed just before this work was devised.
