Unrequited is an experimental portrait of Circe, the cunning and dangerous goddess as seen in Homer’s The Odyssey.

In the classic epic, we meet Circe in Book 10 as Odysseus’ men enter her hall deep in the woods of Aeaea. Only Odysseus manages to resist the Goddess’s seductive magic, earning her respect and thrusting the two characters into a story of love and lust. Therein lies the tragedy of Circe’s story: the goddess, like Calypso before her, becomes entangled in an unrequited love with the titular hero.

This Art Nouveau inspired take on the mythical witch is a mixed media piece done with watercolors and ink on Arches Hot Press watercolor paper.
