Ulysses’ Gaze consists of a massive vintage light box, collaged photo, and found imagery. Attie depicts a young boy playing with a boat by the sea, gazing longingly at his imagined female object of desire. She appears to be Penelope, from Homer’s massive epic, The Odyssey. The bare breasted woman floats, armless and suspended, in an oval cutout illustration. She is a vintage calendar girl from the early sixties, reminiscent of Brigitte Bardot.
