About this work of Art
Persephone’s Fruit is a beautiful CYMK silk screen print by Gavin Dobson.
Persephone was kidnapped by Hades in greek mythology after eating an enchanted Pomegranate seed. Persephone then spent six months every year in the underworld with the god of death himself. Those six months Persephone’s mother, the harvest goddess Demeter mourned for her daughter – stopping the growth of plants and creating what we now know as autumn and finally winter. Awaiting for her daughter to return every spring.
This piece celebrates fertility and womanhood as well as love.
Based on an original gouache painting of a pomegranate, this popular piece of art is individually hand printed by the artist using half tones to create the textures and drips running through the image.
Each layer adds warmth, depth and colour to this abstract design.
70cm x 50cm on Rosaspina Paper 300 gsm.
