These paintings are part of my VISAGES collection - portraits of the emotions, motivations, or states portrayed in Homer's The Iliad. The honor, pain and fury of these 3,000 year old characters are sought out and exposed through the modern mediums of oil, latex and spray paint
The weariness of Ajax, latex and spray paint on canvas, 18 x 25", 2017
The giant Ajax of Salamis was second only to Achilles as the mightiest of the Greeks. Ajax appears in all the battles in The Iliad, as well as fighting a day-long stalemate against Hector.
The honor of Hector, oil and latex paint on canvas, 18 x 25", 2017
The greatest Trojan hero and oldest son of King Priam, Hector successfully defends his city for 10 long years. Even once Patroclus is dead and Achilles has re-entered the fray, he still dutifully goes forth to face fate.
