MEDEA by artist Lacey Bryant
Oil on metal leaf on panel. 16” x 20”
Via Lacey: Medea is an incredibly powerful sorceress who is tricked into loving Jason by Hera. After helping him win his quest and bearing him children he abandons her for another princess so Medea kills her own children by him to get revenge. She does a lot of other pretty savage stuff along the way proving that she is a women best not crossed. I wanted to depict her early in the story as the badass half goddess who rides in on a chariot pulled by golden sun dragons and helps all of Jason's quests actually succeed by using her magic powers and cleverness. Credit where credit is due.
