Gods and Titans

Zeus, Poseidon and Atlas humanised.

This is part of a larger artwork. See the full artwork series:

Pursuing his long held fascination with the power of narrative, Dominic Harris breathes life into classical marble statues of Zeus, Poseidon and Atlas, reimagining these mythological figures in a more humanised form. Harris’s approach is to combine creative exploration and storytelling, questioning traditional depictions and offering a fresh perspective on their personalities and desires.

Inspired by this and the way these icons have been interpreted over millennia, Harris has created a triptych of lifelike portraits who are still relevant to us today. Zeus, holding his iconic lightning bolt, embodies the potential for and consequences of wielding power, urging viewers to reflect on the responsible use of authority in today’s world. Poseidon, with his trident and shifting persona, represents the balance between strength and vulnerability, as well as the challenges individuals face in navigating their various roles and responsibilities. Atlas, bearing the weight of the heavens, serves as a powerful metaphor for the personal and societal burdens we all face.

By imbuing the gods with accessible human traits, be it an expression ennui, irritation or other human quirk, the artist invites viewers to re-evaluate their own grasp of the mythological figures and their stories that have shaped our collective consciousness.
