My Music Maidens (that I also refer to as Sister Icons) are a triptych of modern icon paintings. Number one, is of a female Bouzouki player. This has been released as an A3 sized fine art print on archival paper, with subtle hand painted gold details, It also comes signed and dated
The icons depict three, seated, barefoot musicians in a part interior / part outdoor space, with objects from a domestic setting. The 3 paintings were created at the beginning of the first lock down in Melbourne in 2020. From inside my small suburban apartment, I dreamt of returning to Greece carefree. I envisioned connecting with nature, making up for all the times the urge wasn’t acted on, or taken for granted.
Painting them felt very much like an act of hope and celebration. I used my creativity to sooth and inspire me. Importantly, using it to create a desired reality so that I could give myself relief beyond the stark reality of wintery and foreboding circumstances.
From my imagination and longing, three powerful, confident, women holding musical instruments emerged. Their surroundings are made up of my apartment’s interior (my home furnishings served as inspiration) merging with three beautiful, natural environments: mountainous, tropical and Mediterranean landscapes paired up with a bouzouki player, a guitarist and a toubeleki player. An archway serves as the meeting place between the two spaces.
Each maiden painting has an idyllic natural environment merging with an interior space. The musical sisters represent nature, femininity, sensuality, confidence and creativity. Music maiden 2 & 3 will be available as an A3 print in January 2022 . Back orders welcome.
* have hand painted gold details in parts of the image to suggest there are iconic and precious dimensions to what these paintings represent. The gold also replicates the gold paint that is in the canvas paintings.
