The Fear of Fate / The River Styx
Gateway to the Terror of Hell

Perhaps no story has gripped the imagination of human beings more than the legend surrounding the Gates of Hell, guarded by the ferocious Cerberus, a three-headed dog. Charon, the boatman, ferries lost souls across the River Styx to the netherworld, while the three menacing Furies hover overhead.

Fear of the unknown, isolation and despair find a communal connection in the artist’s depiction of the ravages of dementia and Alzheimer’s disease.
