The Greek Myth of Pygmalion and Galatea is one of the most known stories in Greek Mythology; also one of the most influential and inspiring Greek Myths that has become the main theme for theatrical plays, discussions and art.
The myth speaks of a famous sculpture who creates a statue of a woman so perfect he falls in love with it; worships her so deeply that Aphrodite; the Goddess of Love (aka Venus) hears his prays and transforms the statue into a real women.
(similar to Pinocchio a wood carved boy who is brought to life by a fairy god mother because of a mans wish to have children) .
in this creative we explore the transformation of statue to women.
Oleg beautifully transforms his subjects through the use of a style or material that works uniquely with each of his models authentically. Some of his previous compositions have been copper, ebony and gold, cob web, plaster (the list goes on!)- I absolutely LOVE his work and creativity. The translation of Galatea is “she who is milk” , the statue is depicted to be white and made out of ivory. .
Had me really thinking: what am I made of?
