Sarah Soward - Mars Gradivus


36 x 36 x 1.5 inches

Oil on canvas, gallery wrapped

Mars Gradivus is part of the Stellae Errantes/Wandering Stars series that debuted at the EHCC: Hawaii Museum of Contemporary Art. The imagery is inspired by a combination of the mythology of Mars that is specific to the Gradivus side of his nature that is out in front of the battle, strong, and indomitable. The image is primarily red because of our association with Mars being “the red planet”. It’s also a very active and invigorating color.
