Autonoe – Nereid with her own mind (Giclee print)
Autonoe – a Nereid with her own mind and 1 of the 50 sea-nymph daughters of Nereus (old man of the sea)
‘Nereids of now’ (sea-sisterhood) is my homage to my favourite neighbour, the sea, and our coastal tribe of sea-swimmers. Particularly the women.
I am really moved when I see these stoic, rugged-up females waddling down to the water’s edge, stripping off with gritted teeth and emerging pink-faced and re-born. I have many close friends in the Brighton tribe.
This sisterhood makes me think of the sea-water nymphs from Greek mythology, (the Nereids) – daughters of the waves, taking the sea on…in all states, then surrendering to it. Its infinite power and certainty is a blessing for a world in flux.
