Jessie Edelman, Muse at Denny Dimin Gallery

Wisconsin-born, Brooklyn-based artist Jessie Edelman has created a new series of paintings that form a “pantheon” of nine muses based on goddesses from ancient Greek mythology. Edelman’s images aim to subvert the ongoing understanding of a muse as an object of beauty and passivity, and instead imagine the muse as artist. These nine characters feature throughout the paintings as dynamic, creative narrators of their own stories, rather than inspirations for others—“reclaiming” the muse and celebrating potent femininity.
