The Fall of the Giant Hunter, Orion

Size: 92cm x 92cm

Medium: oil on canvas

Year: 2021

Edition: one of a kind

Orion, in the myth described as a giant, strong, and the only one to have conquered nature. His demise comes from jealousy. Apollo, Artemis’ brother tricked his sister into murdering him. Thus he fell leading to his constellation which is the only memory of him. The painting is completely different from the study I am presenting at the Malta Postal Museum. My idea was to show a more classical pose, and I eventually almost finished the underpainting but changed the composition to its present state. Hyper-sexual and dramatic at the same time since the giant is falling. The hunter is no more.
