While the characters of legend have been popularized in strong modern memes (“mermaid”, “nymph”), the Greeks had a detailed taxonomy of nymphs bound to a particular place including types of naiaids (freshwater), dryades (trees), napaeae (mountains), nephele (clouds), oceanids (salt water). This series will create images of several key types, truer to the original character rather than modern cartoon interpretations. Additionally, I’m keen to fold in current cultural references (eg the Australian bush, beach).
Ideally the resulting images will be exhibited locally. I’m particularly keen to shoot the water images while it’s still warm.
