Eyeing Medusa


Eyeing Medusa: celebrating women who dare to shake things up — is a new project currently in development by Amanta Scott featuring: a series of encaustic paintings; two interactive sculpture installations; workshops; and online resources relating to each individual featured in the series.

Medusa (blamed for being raped, and ultimately beheaded) represents the ancient wild/wise woman. Medusa may only be viewed via a mirror, a tool for reflection, lest her rage or grief turn unprepared viewers to stone.

Eyeing Medusa invites Viewers to reflect upon women: as wise/willful empowered individuals.

works in progress

Eyeing Medusa has been made possible thanks to the generous support of a Mid-Career Artist Grant from the Ontario Arts Council.
