Originally my concept stems from Shakespeare’s unfortunate figure of Ophelia in his play Hamlet. However, instead of focusing on the tragedy of Ophelia’s tale I wanted to explore the struggle and then eventual calm within her. In the painting she is a living Ophelia, refusing to be consumed by the thoughts of her father's death or her lover's ruinous ways.
There is blue light that swims with the colors of naked splendor released from a life enclosed. In the modernizing of the story, the stream in which she drowns becomes instead a swimming pool with bright blue colors that contrasts with and enhances the figure’s red hair and pale skin tones.
Enlivening for me is this image of cool, blue water and red hair; the whole world of my thoughts triggered by the bottom of a swimming pool.
