Announcing a new project: Eyeing Medusa! / by Amanta Scott

Eyeing Medusa

— portraits of sagacious women —


Eyeing Medusa is my newest project starting with a series of encaustic paintings of admirable, sagacious women.

As time progresses Eyeing Medusa will also include: interactive sculpture installations; workshops; and online resources.

Medusa (blamed for being raped and ultimately beheaded) represents the ancient wild/wise woman. Confrontation with Medusa (viewable only via mirror) necessitates reflection.

Eyeing Medusa invites Viewers to reflect upon women: powerful wise individuals.

To date I have six works in progress:

Autumn Peltier; Jody Wilson-Raybould; Patrisse Cullors; Malala Yousafzai; Greta Thunberg; and Rinelle Harper . . . and more on the way!

Do let me know what you think and feel free to propose individuals to be featured.

This is a tremendous amount of fun!
