Ophelia Rising (Blue)
Ophelia Rising (Blue)
Glazed ceramics
4”h x 12”w x 7”d

A woman's hand appears to be crawling out of a conch shell as a commentary on the romanticized paintings of the drowned woman Ophelia from Shakespeare's Hamlet, the #metoo movement and violence toward women in general. The sculpture could offer a revenge scenario, a haunting, or an alternative narrative for Ophelia.
