The Trojan Women, 2002

SOLD

Enquire




oil on linen

92.00 x 122.00

signed & dated l.r.

Provenance: Private Collection, Melbourne, since 2003
Exhibited: Kristin Headlam: News, Charles Nodrum Gallery, 24 July - 16 August 2003, no. 9
Note: Headlam's 2003 exhibition 'News' consisted of paintings based on images from the news cycle - mainly newspapers. Images of dust-covered 9/11 survivors hung alongside AFL players tangled in tackle, child-soldiers, and synchronised swimmers. 'The Trojan Women' is based on a photograph of a group of Palestinian women mourning a loss. The classical title transforms the scene of localised civil war to that of universal and timeless tragedy.

No matter how we writhe and twist, we find / Something out there exceeds a human mind. / Oh dear, you think. The poet’s baffled too.

All the choir of stars and panoply of heaven / Gaze down at our pygmy web, the snail-like / Tracks we leave on a blue-green planet / For a mere minute in eternity’s eye, / Shadows across the shadowpaths of fallen / Angels ...

Arsene had harvested the hemispheres / In his long room / He intended to compose a great cantata / Where all our poisons fit in the Creation / Venoms became his friends, / Not as an end, but a study which portends / Precisely how death can teach us...

Angelica knocked at Arsene’s oiled front door / Because she knew he knew about a book / Or could at least tell her where to look / For clues to where the mislaid answers were.
