Artwork Description

I think Medea is an interesting character, she is troubled by a inner rift, she comes to a decision but then she goes back many times... in her mind passion and reason clash... to save the children or to carry out her revenge?At the end she decided to kill her children, the offence she has received is too heavy for her nature. She has always been dominated by the passion: because of Jason she killed her brother, betrayed her father , leaved her country and accepted to go to a foreign and hostile land. Jason abandoned Medea because of a richer woman!
In this paint I tried to create a dark atmospheare because Medea has taken her decision, I wanted her look to express a deep suffering, but also the firm decision of killing her children.

I Like these 4 pictures, they remind me of Vivaldi, "Le Quattro Stagione" ("The Four Seasons")
