“the sirens” at arc gallery in san francisco

I am thrilled to participate in “48 Pillars,” a structural constraint show at Arc Gallery in San Francisco opening on Saturday, February 26th, 2022 from 7-9pm.  The curator, Michael Yochum invited 24 San Francisco Bay Area artists to each produce a diptych on identically sized panels.  There was no limitation based on the subject matter but each artist needed to utilize the 12″W x 48″H panel format.

It was exciting to adapt my imagery to a column-like structure.  In working in this format, I began to think of the Greek mythological Sirens, who were a combination of a woman and a bird.  In Homer’s Odyssey, they are described as a pair which felt perfect for the two-column format.  The Sirens are known for their seductive song and their lure of danger.  Below are some detail pictures of the work which I would like to share with you!
