The Icarus series is a collection of watercolor and ink paintings that reference the Greek myth of Icarus, a mythological wax-winged figure that flew too close to the sun. Siry’s falling figures examine the struggle to maintain balance in life, while embracing failure as a crucial component to one’s development.
