OVID’S “METAMORPHOSES” has served as inspiration for visible artists for lots of of years, and in 2020 it felt as related as ever. It was the primary e book that I learn as I hunkered down in my condo on the top of the pandemic. Ovid’s forged of human and bestial characters are on the mercy of capricious Gods who continually change themselves and all the pieces round them into completely different kinds. These transformations are each stunning and ghastly, violent and serene — a blurring of boundaries between people, nature and forces extra highly effective than ourselves. What impressed me most concerning the “Metamorphoses” (I learn David Raeburn’s basic translation) is how vibrant and visible these tales are, and the way Ovid captures human desperation and fragility. In making these photos I needed to replicate on the concept of changing into one thing else. Ovid’s bodily and emotional landscapes are continually shifting. I needed to visualize the emotions we’re going via as we begin to remodel again into our regular lives, re-engaging with ourselves and with nature.
