DESCRIPTION

Catalogue of Canadian painter Harry Steen's second exhibition with Jonathan Cooper at Park Walk Gallery. In these new works Harry continues to explore his fascination with the culture of Ancient Greece, transposing the myth of Orpheus and Eurydice to a series of elegant interiors and atmospheric landscapes, both real and imagined, from the antiquities-filled halls of Dumbarton Oaks, Washington DC, to the ruined temples of Aulis, Greece. Suffused with a dramatic contrast of light and shade, and united by their underlying sense of the surreal, these paintings invite us to share the artists intriguing world.

  • Now thro' the noiseless throng their way they bend,

    And both with pain the rugged road ascend;

    Dark was the path, and difficult, and steep,

    And thick with vapours from the smoaky deep.

    They well-nigh now had pass'd the bounds of night,

    And just approach'd the margin of the light,

    When he, mistrusting lest her steps might stray,

    And gladsome of the glympse of dawning day,

    His longing eyes, impatient, backward cast

    To catch a lover's look, but look'd his last;

    For, instant dying, she again descends,

    While he to empty air his arms extends.

    Again she dy'd, nor yet her lord reprov'd;

    What could she say, but that too well he lov'd?

    One last farewell she spoke, which scarce he heard;

    So soon she drop'd, so sudden disappear'd.

    from Ovids Metamorphoses, Book X,

    translated by Samuel Garth (1661 1719)
