Original drawing in coloured pencil on paper. 

"Morgan Le Fay (or Morgane) is a powerful enchantress in the Arthurian legend and in the famous books by Thomas Malory "Le Morte D'Arthur" (1485). In these works she has studied astrology as well as "black magic"; she becomes an apprentice of Merlin, and subsequently a vindictive adversary of Arthur and the knights of the Round Table. Sometimes the character of Morgan/Morgane is connected with the Irish goddess Morrigan, usually seen as a war goddess with multiple incarnations. This is my interpretation (or vision) of the character."

See into the world of
Fabiano Gagliano is an artist driven by a love of drawing and of beauty. His mythical characterisations of the Bella Donna, while familiar to modern eyes and tastes, link to romances of the past, celebrating the mysteries of femininity. Virtuous yet sexual; both classical and pre-Raphaelite, if you like.
But in the background, Roman letters etched in stone hint at hidden horror: VIDE COR MEUM, inscribed behind Untitled’s haughty beauty, in fact a cryptic reference to Dante’s Inferno, via the music of Patrick Cassidy in the slasher classic Hannibal.
