Initial Gallery is pleased to present Of Myth and Men featuring recent oil paintings by Vancouver-based artist Roselina Hung. Combining art-historical and well-known mythological motifs with self-reflective imagery Hung’s fantastical oil paintings toy with modern myth-making. The artist, herself often portrayed in obvious disguise, interacts with characters and symbols pulled from mythological story lines and personal memory. By interweaving personal reflection with archetypal symbolism Of Myth and Men considers the parallels between modern personal storytelling and the grand mythologies of the Ancients.
