The Echoes of Duplicity
Plate size: 41.5 x 56 cm
Paper size: 56 x 76 cm
This print draws from the Ovidian myth of Echo and Narcissus relating the ideas and dangers of self-love with identity. Ultimately, the remedy for an identity crisis is accepting and loving yourself as who you are. The idealised version of ourselves we imagine and at times long to be reflects an inherent narcissism of impregnable self-infatuation, echoing warnings from the Ovidian myth where the constant longing for this idealised self, hinders self-development.
