Ariadne's Lament l Stephen Linsteadt

Ariadne's Lament, oil on canvas, 152 x 124 cm, 2021

Ariadne appears again in my painting. However, she evolved during the process into a more androgynous figure, maybe that of Dionysus. Her outstretched arms are reaching toward a swan. The swan represents our soul. It is also a favorite form of Zeus, the seducer.
