• Caterina Leone, Self.marymagdalene.erased, Silverpoint (silver, Bronze And Gold) On Wood Panel

Additional Information

Self/Magdalene/Erased by Caterina Leone – Silverpoint (.99 silver, 23k gold and bronze) on wood panel, 60cm diameter. Ready to hang.

This work loosely appropriates a painting by Francesco Hayez titled ‘Mary Magdalene as a Hermit’ from 1833. The prevalence of historical paintings with a religious or moral theme that display the female figure in sexually alluring poses, naked or semi-dressed, are reminders to question the authority of the patriarchal canon and its impact on an impressionable and otherwise admiring female mind.

On a more personal level, this work is a confrontation with my own fertility, or possible lack thereof, as well as what it means to consider motherhood in today’s environmental and political climate.
