Odyssey Ring is a photographic lithography printed in the LeRoy Neiman Art Center for Print Studies at Columbia University, New York, NY.
The scene narrates the tale of a sultan who’s handkerchief was stolen by a bird.
The scene was inspired by a kabuki theatre scene, with traditional costumes and real actors. The particular style of this piece is created by the mute navy blue tonalities which play and chase each other in an almost topographical landscape where planes of the theatre are flattened by a unique dynamic surface. The mistery of the piece is condensed by the tension between the two elements who are a few meters apart. The sultan who dominates the scene is counterbalanced by a column of flames which is devouring the right hand corner of the theatre.
The piece was originated after the discovery of a friend’s illness and it’s purpose was to discolor and fade the pain of the sudden dramatic fatality.
