Lilli Waters – Flooded

1 February, 2024

‘Flooded’ is inspired by the iconography of ancient Greek and Roman mythology, its folklore, and its religious paintings, recasting the contemporary woman as a powerful goddess of nature and a portrayal of femininity that we should celebrate, embrace and worship.

A God-like enigmatic female figure is submerged within a dramatic watery cloudscape, blurring the lines between heaven and earth. Portraying the existential dualities of light and dark, she transverses through a portal into an unknown time of fear and discomfort, longing for a deeper connection.

The unsettling maelstrom in which this figure tumbles and swirls into the vortex is her refuge, perhaps a pathway to enlightenment.
