Paintings from 2019-present

This gallery features oil paintings from the past 7 (or so)  years (and 4 digital prints at the end of the set). These paintings might be thought of as Icons to the Lost . . . a sort of celebration of the spiritual void bequeathed to me by decades of education in “faith”-based schools.

The lost, the uncanny, dream-like wandering in Chthonic realms, these are themes of my current work.

Take, for example, the “Chthonic Alice” gif on my Home page.  Alice (she of the looking glass and rabbit hole) is seated in front of the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil holding the Chalice with Serpents from the Book of the Revelation. Shown here in her Chthonic aspect, we see her as a sort of Black Madonna, i.e. a lost segment of the pantheon with a decidedly uncanny, Dionysian aspect (not unlike Persephone, Nut, Ishtar, etc).



These photos give a clearer sense of how the framed paintings appear in a gallery space.

Another “gallery” view.
