Absence #4. Women in Masterpieces

Judith with Holophernes Head. Print, variable size, 2007. Limited Edition of 7.

This artwork is a contemporary reworking of the painting Judith Victorious by Lucas Cranach the Elder, made in 1530.
In this very modern re-interpretation of a classical artwork, Judith and the head of Holofernes are depicted as three-dimensional models reminiscent of characters in contemporary computer game imagery, and the scene through the window behind them is now that of the Holy Land in modern times.
