Ode is my personal artistic interpretation of the story of Shakespeare’s Ophelia and the ways in which human life is explored in literary works. My body of work represents not only the symbolic tragedy of Ophelia, but the ways in which life and death intertwine in nature. The paper itself represents the course of one’s life. I have used Ode to explore these themes in a way that subverts expectation, moving beyond the traditional depiction of skulls and darkness, choosing instead to focus on death and rebirth in nature.
