Tecnique: Mixed media (inks, acrylics, gold leaf) on canvas
The title takes inspiration from the Greek myth of Cynara, for the intensity of the colours and the bold sculptural forms represented on the canvas.
Rumor was, Zeus fell in love with a nymph of surpassing beauty, with long ashy hair named Cynara. He tried to seduce her, but as she resisted all his attempts, he became furious, and in a desperate effort to cancel her beauty, he turned her into a thorny artichoke.
