THE LAST SONG   2016 CONTACT DETAILS: Artist: Eanna Email: DETAILS OF ARTWORK: Media: water colour paints Dimensions: width: 400mm/ Height: 560mm ARTISTS STATEMENT: Till her blood was frozen slowly, And her eyes were darken’d wholly, Turn’d to tower’d Camelot. For ere she reach’d upon the tide, The first house by the water-side, Singing in her song she died, The lady of Shalott. Quote from “The Lady of Shalott” by Alfred, Lord Tennyson published in 1842. This painting is strongly influenced by Tennyson’s poem where the Lady is a magical being who lives alone in a castle. She suffers from a mysterious curse and must continually weave images on her loom without ever looking directly out at the world. After she sees Sir Lancelot, she leaves the castle, finds a boat and floats down the river to Camelot in pursuit of love. She tragically dies before she arrives at the palace as she sings her last song.
