Tales from Ovid, for The Phoenix

This is for the anouncement / review of a play in the Phoenix (formerly the Boston Phoenix). In this staging of Tales from Ovid, some scenes have the players perform hanging on fabric that is suspended from the ceiling.

It was interesting to read up on the background, on Ovid and his writings, and Greek Mythology. The inspiration for this image is the story of Phaethon, son of Helios, who was allowed to steer the sun-wagon, lost control and almost set the whole earth on fire. I enjoyed working with energetic brush strokes to emphasize raw energy in the piece.
Many thanks to AD Kevin Banks.
