Desdemona rising from the ashes of her tragic death as the woman she wanted to be, needed to be, free from her mortal chains, she is fearless, fierce and free. Shedding the heavy chains of victimization she wore in her volatile relationship with Othello.
ABOUT THIS SERIES:
This series was born of a series of outtakes i did when trying to get the right facial expressions to overlay with R Paul Sardanas amazing abstract portraits of Desdemona.
I very much wanted a way to combine mediums, to collaborate on this collection. R. Paul Sardanas was generous enough to let me use his abstracts paintings as a photographic canvas. I loved the challenge of working in mixed media.
It is because i took so many portraits before i got the right look, that i decided to call the outtakes, “Chasing Desdemona” because that’s what it felt like i was doing with my repeated attempts to create just the right look.
And it was meant to be that way as that ended up being the perfect title for the series, itself. And i was very happy to learn that these extra portraits will be part of the book that is in the works as a follow up to this online presentation!
