Piece description from the artist
Persephone is shown waitressing at a diner in Hades, serving a slice of lemon and a bowl of seahorse soup, with one of the seahorses rising up from his fate to look at Persephone accusingly. The waitress wears an orchid in her pocket, still an admirer of flowers even after being abducted while picking them many years ago.
The artwork of Skip Myers explores the world of dreams, symbolism, mythology, various religious belief systems, the human condition and our shared collective consciousness with all sentient beings. One art critic described him as an oneironaut, or one who explores alternative realities. These works are strongly influenced by personal stories, events from life painted on canvas, filtered through a process of organic abstraction and emotion, and built with vivid color and esoteric symbols.
