The Story:

'Abduction' is a reimagining of Greek mythology; in particular, 'The Abduction of Ganymede' (1650) a painting by French painter Eustache Le Sueur.

The story is about the powerful god Zeus, known for often abusing his power for selfish reasons, Ganymede, a sheep herder. Ganymede was the most beautiful human Zeus laid eyes on. One day, Zeus decides to abduct Ganymede from his home and make Ganymede a servant and wine-pourer in the heavens. 

In this painting, the bald eagle dually symbolizes America and Zues; while Ganymede represents Mother Africa. This piece tells a much deeper story of our American history and its religious and racial imperialism.

 

Original painted in 2018.
