“The is a modern take on the classical depiction of the three charities or graces. These women were the three daughters of Zeus and represented youth/beauty, mirth, and elegance. Painters and sculptors throughout history have created their own interpretations of the female trio.
My depiction is a representation that shows unity within diversity. They are unified by their embrace and are symbolic of women supporting other women despite physical differences. My three Graces are surrounded by bright florals to bring the image into a modern and vibrant context.”
