The word, calypso, has several meanings. First, it’s a type of music or song with lots of rhythm. Maybe lessor known, it’s the name of a character, a nymph, in Homer’s Odyssey who detains a Greek hero on her island for seven years attempting to make him her immortal husband. Both seem to fit this painting well. The colors and shapes suggest a rhythmic motion. The feathered edges of the reddish orange shape could symbolize twirling or even flirting. The dark blues against the pale orange and white give us some drama. You can believe it to be a dance or a flirty nymph or something else. For any story you choose, it’s a frivolously fun painting.
