Artwork Title: Reverie
Artist: Luzena Adams

Reverie merges reality and fantasy elaborating on the mystification and enigma of redheads.  This recessive gene makes up 13% of the population and is a trait that rarely goes unremarked. With a loaded history muddled by myth and taboo, redheads are mysterious, verging on the fantastical. Using photographic footage of the female form immersed underwater, Luzena Adams has created a surreal work engaging the viewer in an intimate moment of reverie.
