FOR TEARS & JOY

For Joy, 2008

Mariana , 2007

"Marianę" zainspirował szereg obrazów bazujących na historii samotnej kobiety z "Miarki za miarkę" Szekspira, która po katastrofie i zatonięciu statku, którym płynął jej posag, na próżno wyczekuje kochanka , z którym w 'zamożniejszych" czasach dzieliła plany na przyszłość. Życiowe :) Motyw podjął poeta Alfred Lord Tennyson w poemacie "Mariana" z 1830 roku.

"Mariana" was inspired by a couple of paintings based on the story of solitary Mariana from William Shakespeare’s play Measure for Measure, written between 1601 and 1606. In the play, Mariana was to be married, but was rejected when her dowry was lost in a shipwreck..

She only said, 'My life is dreary,
      He cometh not,' she said;
    She said, 'I am aweary, aweary,'
      I would that I were dead!'
(Alfred Tennyson, " Mariana " 1830 )
