MARTYR FOR LOVE     2016 CONTACT DETAILS: Artist: Eanna Email: DETAILS OF ARTWORK: Media: water colour paints Dimensions: Width: 440mm/ Height: 615mm ARTISTS STATEMENT: She left the web, she left the loom, She made three paces thro’ the room, She saw the water-lily bloom, She saw the helmet and the plume, She look’d down to Camelot. Out flew the web and floated wide; The mirror crack’d from side to side; “The curse is come upon me,” cried The lady of Shalott. Quote from the “The Lady of Shalott” by Alfred, Lord Tennyson published in 1832. 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. Instead she looks into a mirror which reflects the busy road and the people of Camelot who pass by her castle. One day she sees Sir Lancelot and is prepared to become cursed by looking at him directly, and inevitably dies.
