Art Description

Painting: Acrylic on Canvas.

Second part of the orphic trilogy, Orpheus, filmed by Jean Cocteau in 1950.
In this sequence i'd like show: layers of space simulating layers of time.
The film is based on the legend of Orpheus. Heurtebise informs Orpheus that Eurydice is dead. Heurtebise also tells Orpheus that the Princess represents Death, and that mirrors are doors through which Death comes and goes. If you look at yourself in a mirror for long enough, you will see Death appear. Orpheus is so distraught by his wife’s death, that he wants to follow Eurydice into the underworld. Heurtebise gives him a pair of gloves, so that Orpheus can follow Heurtebise through the mirror into the underworld. Orpheus sees his own unhappiness in the mirror, but Heurtebise convinces him to believe in the possibility of entering the underworld, and leaving present-day reality.
Orpheus follows Heurtebise through the mirror, and walks in slow-motion through the underworld, as Heurtebise hovers ahead of him, leading the way.
