The painting was completed on a very loose theme of water and tries to capture the dark side of the story of 'Thamyris'. 

In Greek mythology, Thamyris, son of Philammon and the nymph Argiope, was a Thracian singer who was so proud of his skill that he boasted he could out sing the Muses. He competed against them and lost. As punishment for his presumption they blinded him, and took away his ability to make poetry and to play the lyre. This outline of the story is told in the Iliad.

IAN PALMER ARTIST paintings / collages / sculptures. A multi-disciplined artist and designer working out of South West France. An abstract gestural artist with a personal vision, often inspired by nature, he works into the canvas, with a knife, a brush, a sponge or any tool to describe or suggest. A thought or a message which is intended to be a free interpretation for everyone, a journey to the heart of the very essence of ambiguity, where everyone meets the powerful energy of the artist to finally appropriate the entire translation. This painter favors movement in the creation of his canvas, which allows the gaze that escapes into a dreamlike atmosphere, a free space, a land conducive to the wanderings of the mind. Ian Palmer offers you a space of freedom, to walk around without direction and indulge in simple contemplation, a space to let your emotions come. Christine Dalbos Galerie D'Art Bleu Reglisse (Translated from a French text)
