About The Artwork

Euterpe was one of the Muses in Greek mythology, presiding over music. She has been called “Giver of delight” by ancient poets. I painted this in 2019, a time (and still a time) when humanity is, for the moment at least, decidedly un-delightful and there is little cause for music, hence her stopping her playing to regard humanity with a mixture of resigned disbelief and disdain. She is usually depicted playing the flute, but hey, artistic license.

Nova Scotia-based artist Jennifer Goddard works in oils and multi-medium drawing. She focuses primarily on the languages of the figure, drawing on 18 years studying classical dance. Her approach is either one of response or escape: the activist responds to society’s injustices and overarching themes; the escapist revels in pure colour, line and composition. A lifelong artist and largely self-taught, she studied for three summers at The Banff Centre, Alberta, and at Studio Escalier in Paris and Argenton, France (2015-16). In the interim, she studied under various teachers while pursuing a career in advertising. Her work was selected for the 2018 Circle Arts Quarterly Magazine and Manifest Gallery INDA and INPA annuals (2015-16-18). In 2014 and 2015 she was shortlisted for the BP Portrait Award in London, and was selected for the Kingston Portrait Prize exhibition in 2015.
