sea weed woman rises up from the murky depths of the mind of the artist

Eleanor Clare

She is something like a mermaid or a siren.
She has long blonde hair and a flowing gown of sea green and blue.
Her lips are blue and swollen to monstrous proportions; her complexion is pallid.
Beneath her skirts, situated in the position of a cod-piece, is a cod's head.
Her songs are designed to lure us.

She rises up from the ocean; she floats upon the dark waters of the lake at the bottom of the mountain; she appears at the cliff's edge.

This much I could tell you about the character I had been developing for my video, 'Cod Piece: A Split Tale.'

In early December, I got together with Sam Timms, a theatrical make up artist, and Anna Lytridou, artist, for a photo shoot.
