Myth of Sisyphus
Medium: acrylic on canvas
Description: This painting illustrates the famous ancient Greek myth of Sisyphus. Sisyphus was punished to push a rock to the top of a mountain. However, every time he almost reached the top, the rock would fall to the bottom of the mountain. Camus used this story to explain the absurdity of life. We are just like Sisyphus, doing the same things again and again. However, we can find joy by creating our own meanings while doing our tasks.
