Danse Macabre

A polytypic of 11 acrylic paintings (each 65X55 cm). Part of the Moly Matrimony installation. 2016

Based  on the late medieval frescoes of the Dance of Death in the Holy Trinity Church in the village of Hrastovlje. The frescoes show people from all social strata moving towards a freshly dug grave, each escorted by a skeleton representing their deaths.

Greenfeld creates eleven paintings by using figures borrowed from the original and by replacing their skeletal escorts with her own symbol of death. The latter is a copy of a figure with a piano keyboard drawn by a six-year old child, a boy whom the artist was very fond of and who died.
