A Mariners Tale
The Art of the Siren by Julie Zarate
The legend of the sirens has been a tale fraught with danger, longing, seduction and plight to sailors and sea-farers. Countless artists, poets and bards have translated their images and, thus, have been burned into our collective memories.
“A Mariner’s Tale” is a collection of drawings by Julie Zarate, which bear semblance to 19th century ink artform and has been likened to “scrimshaw”. Their opulent curlicues are invitations, like the Siren’s Song, to get lost within.”
