About Maria Rivans

About the artwork

Framed original collage on paper, ‘Nathara’ depicts iconic inventor Hedy Lamarr, her glittering blue eyes and dusky pink lips picked out from the vintage greyscale photograph. With her name taken from the Scottish word for ‘snake’, Lamarr becomes Nathara, a Medusa-esque siren, with coiled serpents for ringlets and a flock of feathers for avian attire. In her explosive headdress, Rivans mingles motifs from the natural world with snatches of symbolism: spot the Lone Ranger riding on a big cat, in a mildly mocking denunciation of gun crime; the small mystery of the ship in the bottle, nestled amongst flora and fauna; and a balancing act between zebra, plant and acrobat, all caught in a moment of tantalising suspension.
