    About The Work

    Cultural and historical reference is morphed into stunning scenes of dark fantasy in the work of Inka Essenhigh. Known for her stylishly twisted aesthetic and almost sculptural drawing technique, Essenhigh transforms her subjects with a visual energy elevated by the color, movement and detail in her work. In this ten color silkscreen print, the artist revisits a classic moment in mythology—the tale of Daedalus and Icarus from Ovid’s Metamorphoses. Draped figures are engaged in a floating struggle, the central character enveloped in a blood red pool of color, swirling lines and perspective reminiscent of planetary movement.
