Achilles by Mary H

Artworks < $500 Share


oil paint

8 x 10 in

Tense and self-constricting, a figure crouches on a dreamlike, hazy roof edge. Inspired by Gang of Youths’ song Achilles Come Down, a pair of narratives around suicidal ideation, this painting parallels depression and hope with classical and modern architectural features. The composition of the painting, divided sharply between city space and rooftop, parallels the two voices in the song, one urging Achilles to jump and one to save himself. The flatness of the image, as the canvas showing through, imitates the mental effects of depression.
