Sirens of Rutino2012 by Adrian Arleo

This connection to myth and women's experience, especially as linked to personal narrative, also exists in the work of artist Adrian Arleo. In her piece Sires of Rutino, she draws a connection to the myth of the Odyssey by referencing the sirens, magic women who cast spells on men so that they might wreck their ships on the rocky coast. In Sirens of Rutino, however, the Sirens sit on the arms of the human figure and represent Arleo's own daughters.
