Daphne and Apollo, The fashion collection, No.10

Art code: 966 540 Copy the art code

MadameRuiz Profile picture Daphne is a nymph from Greek mythology. In the myth, Daphne is pursued by Apollo because he had been hit by Cupid's arrows to love her. Daphne, however, was not at all keen on this and wanted to escape Apollo's attempts at seduction. Daphne begged the river god Peneus to help her and he turned her into a laurel tree.

This digital painting is a modern and exciting translation of the ancient story written by Ovid in his collection 'Metamorphoses'. In an abstract way, MadameRuiz gives form to the transformation of woman into laurel tree.

The woman's clothing is surprisingly provocative, while the man in the form of a mystical phantom imposes himself on her.

Is this intrusiveness reality, past tense, or is it merely playing out in the woman's mind. And is this desirable or undesirable? And is the woman mistress or victim?

An old-fashioned story and yet wringingly topical.

I am MadameRuiz, and am an artist by profession. I hope to delight you with my work. Here in my profile, or on your wall :) Both are fun!

Will you let me know what you think of my work? I would love to get in touch with you. Also when you have one of my works in your home I am very curious about the end result in your interior.

I love everything that has to do with art, culture and creativity. Experiencing, creating, teaching and communicating. Through language, image, non-verbal and through the musical voice.

I became known for my commissioned ink portraits. My work was first shown to a large audience in the program VTWonen Weer verliefd op je huis (February 2021). I make many ink portraits of and for individuals; from pregnancy portraits, wedding portraits, child portraits, love portraits and family portraits to portraits of pets such as dogs, cats, horses and birds. These ink portraits are all handmade by the way, drawn and painted with east indian ink on watercolor paper.

In my shop at work on the wall you can order my Digital Art. Because I normally work almost exclusively on commission, my autonomous art via Digital Art is really a wonderful experimental outlet. This also means that I keep experimenting with painting techniques and collage techniques using Photoshop. Although I love to experiment, quality comes first
