Erebus and the Hesperides explores stories that underpin Greek Mythology and the relevance of what they’re trying to teach, to today’s life.

In vibrant pinks, reds, oranges and blues, each painting in this series embodies a different character. Liley has represented their energy through the automatism of line and expressive brushwork.

“The Hesperides are the muses that live in the western most spaces of the hemisphere and are personified by cast shadows caused by the setting sun on clouds. They live in a garden where they guard the golden apples. They’re three strong women who are protecting something precious.

Erebus is the god of darkness and is the father of the Hesperides – he comes out when the sun sets and goes back when the sun rises.” – Janice Liley
