Paintings from 2019-present
This gallery features oil paintings from the past 2-3 years. 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 Apocalypse. 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).
Two scenes from the Oneiros Gallery showing installation views of recent work. While the gallery itself is virtual (i.e. digital 3-d) the work is real (oil on canvas), framed and sized as shown.
Currently on the Easel
Work in progress (oil on canvas) as of December 2020.
