  • About the artwork

    Artwork sold in perfect condition

    From Greek Mythology, Persephone is the Agriculture Goddess, which represents fertility. And she’s the Underworld Goddess, as well.

    Kidnapped by Hades, Persephone used to spend Spring and Summer seasons taking care of fruits, flowers and herbs. In Winter and Autumn seasons, she used to go down to the Underworld.

    As an allegory against those unbroken, regular motion, Persephone’s Nightmare refers to life’s unpredictable fluidity and sudden unbalance, bringing shadow’s supremacy and unbearable destruction on Earth.

Regina Correa

Brazil Born in: 1960

Long before become a visual artist, Regina Correa learned the trade of sewing and hand embroidery from her mother as a cultural female skills. These crafts leads to threads and welfts... as well as photographs.

Regina Correa's photographic research focuses on questions about identity and memories, its surrounding secrets and unknown mysteries.

In order to make up her images, she assembles, reuses different materials, such as old photos and assorted ordinary artifacts. Alternative photograph, cyanotype, analog photos, photograms are tools to improve her work. The artist adds a sort of peculiar touch: sewing, handmade works, collage, embroidery, for instance.

Through her art, Regina Corrêa invites the viewer into a process of self-renewal, by exploring human relationships and ways to rebuild occasional brokenesses to reach for a potential healing. Thus, a caress, hopeful and cozy atmosphere embraces her entire work.
