Bushwhacked! 2009 Google Exhibition

On the same day at the same time, scores of artists googled the same word. From the same page of results, they each selected one website as their sole source of inspiration for an artwork. This year they googled: Bushwhacked!

Josonia Palaitis has entered an oil painting entitled 'Sleep' .

Palaitis explains her painting: "The image I googled was of an iris flower called Bushwhacked.  It brought to mind the story of Iris the ancient Greek goddess of rainbows and her visit to the Cave of Sleep.  Here she found Somnus the god of sleep in his state of perpetual recumbency."

(from Ovid's Metamorphoses X1- Somnus and Iris)
