"I have been fascinated by the various ways "St. George and the Dragon" has been portrayed. It is an exciting and theatrical image that can be presented as a simple narrative or a complex metaphor. I chose Tintoretto's "St. George" as inspiration for my print because it emphasizes the emotive content in a whirling, dramatic masterpiece. St. George is sandwiched between the maiden's terror (foreground) and God's intervention (above.) It is the emotional and psychological aspects of the allegory that appeals to me, the elements that leave the most interpretation to the viewer." / Mitchell Friedman
