The Three Graces: Gods and Heroes series, science fiction surrealism

(Remake). The Three Graces (“Charities” in Greek mythology) are goddesses of charm, beauty, and creativity – just the things the 20th century Western society has started to be obsessed with, physical beauty of a woman being of number one importance. Popular culture, fashion industry, film industry, and advertising have greatly – to say the least – profited from this maniacal preoccupation with physical appearance.

Early human history demonstrated another approach to beauty which was considered by ancient philosophers, such as Plato, to be more of an inspirational instrument, rather than a challenge for a simple mortal. The divine beauty – the true beauty – could not be cognitively perceived and interpreted; it was put on the pedestal and taken for granted. According to Plato, beauty is inherent in the object itself. Later on, Immanuel Kant, the 18th-century German philosopher, added that the judgment of beauty is purely subjective; therefore it cannot fall under any category of reasoning.

We live, however, in a real world driven by a major brainwashing obsession of how-to-become-an-ever-slimming-and-make-up-perfecto-sex-icon. Hollywood industry would surely be the first to have dumped the initial pile of so-called beauty icons onto the general population. Pretty movie faces always had an extra touch – up-front sexuality. Unisex psychology was also very successfully introduced throughout the last century, by means of clothing and behavioural patterns of bona-fide icons, such as Madonna and Cher, who clearly combined both feminine and masculine archetypal qualities in their PR images.

Search for real beauty – or, rather, what defines real beauty – reminds me of the Holy Grail quest. Body art, Gothic, Goth, retro, medieval, Greek, - all of these popular trends have left their imprints on a never-ending path to finding true perfection. How far it will continue into the future and what will become of it, is another story. But this fascination is sure to outlive at least the current century.

This image is a remake of ‘The three graces, Goth mode style’. It is highly unusual for me to revise my older works, but this one has been bothering me for quite some time. I have decided to retouch colour so that the overall mood would be similar to a series’ image ‘Moonlight Bathing Valkyries’.
