In Ophelia pattern, the invisible heroine of Shakespeare’s play gently runs her fingers through field and forest grasses. Huge swamp mosquitoes and the pattern’s dark color scheme support the melancholic mood.
These prints were inspired by Pre-Raphaeliets paintings by John William Waterhouse and the image of Ophelia. My goal was to combine the portrait of a sank woman, a swamp, mosquitos, and wildflowers. My challenge was to enter the woman’s hands into a new pattern not making them look like a stump of dead limbs.
