Charon

2017, 120 x 210 cm, photo tapestry, 168 ultra-gloss photos on plywood panel, edition 1/1.

The ferryman of death. But not a monster, I see him more as a gatekeeper, a guide – granting passage to all who can pay his price. For it is youth and beauty I wish to take me onto the next plane not a nightmarish ghoul and so the vigorous Charon, immersed in the thick red waters that divide the realm of the living and the dead, solemnly pushes onwards, ever closer to each and everyone of us.
