ABOUT THE ARTWORK
A young woman reclines in a revealing black negligee. There is an old-fashioned phone receiver, the cord of which protrudes improbably from the mouth of a large mask. This image superimposed from Peter Paul Rubens, Head of Medusa, from 1617. Multiple snakes slither and coil around her. Beauty meets absurdity describe Miss Aniela’s, Message to Medusa. The British artist is drawn to Surrealism, the female form, and the juxtaposition between real and manmade.
