FAREWELL TO ICARA
1993, oil on canvas, 36 x48 in.
Icarus was a character In classical mythology who built a pair of wings from feathers and wax, and then fell when the wax melted from flying too close to the sun.
Here, I have reinterpreted the myth with a female character in a subtle parody of my own work. After all the earnest paintings I had done of winged figures, now the wings are obviously artificial. This brings their reliability into question, as well as the contrivancy of the image itself.
