Becky Kolsrud, Dryad (Cypress), 2022; Hand-Embellished Limited Edition Print
From the artist’s Elegies series, Dryad (Cypress) is inspired by classical antiquity, exploring grief and solitude through the myth of Cyparissus and Apollo. A spread of clouds emerging from pale pink light, and the cypress tree with two human legs connoting Cyparissus’ fate as a tree to mourn the death of his prized stag. With soft contours and inventive coloring Kolsrud’s quiet composition calls attention to the collective grief and solitude many have experienced in isolation during the pandemic.
