In Your Element
Temple O, acrylic on canvas – 30X40X1.5 inches
As the faculty which knows all by experience, Sophia’s psyche is forever damaged by exploration of the taboo. The part of her that wishes she could go back wants desperately to forget. The mind forces a split. Dumping a mass of heaviness, higher consciousness creates the great divide. On the other side, the demiurge comes to life.
Demonized by a self-denying society steeped in materialism, Satan is a god of self-acceptance and passionate indulgence in the pleasures of life. Like Sophia before the split, he knows no shame, living without regrets.
