A Special Day With Tara Sellios - Impulses II

My work is rooted in art history, and in this case, Auguste Rodin’s large scale sculpture, “The Gates of Hell”, which is based on Dante’s Inferno, lends itself as a significant inspiration for the photographs. 

This piece portrays figures, that are intertwined in various emotional states in the presence of Hell.  Being struck by the beauty and intensity of this sculpture, I used it as a jumping off point for “Impulses”.
