Ruby Grandy – Immortalized Divinity

This piece is part of an ongoing series of works that examines the concept of femininity, specifically the divine feminine, and how this can be embraced by women and non-men as a mode of feminism instead of continuing the “feminist” tradition of villainizing it. This piece represents an aspect of feminine empowerment through the artistic immortalization through ancient sculpture of historic divine, natural, and powerful beauty. I experimented with figure shading and interesting lighting in order to challenge myself and my abilities, and took inspiration and references from ancient Greek figure sculptures and classical paintings.
