//
The Embrace series started when something I witnessed reminded me that an embrace can be so many things. It can be loving, of course, but also overwhelming and even violent.

“Stream” is my interpretation of Millais’ “Ophelia”. In my version an audacious female figure is preparing to jump in the water and save “Ophelia”, although the nude figure in the water is floating and not drowning. She is in a sea and not a brook, as in Shakespeare’s play. She is embracing the water and she mourns nothing and nobody.
