Last week I gave a sneak peek of this painting (you can read it HERE) — I’m now going to take you through the pictorial stages that led up to the finished piece.
So, enough chit-chat — let’s dive into it! 🙂
Well, there you have it!
Afloat in a Torrent Without a Paddle
The title that came through at first was ‘primordial residue‘. However, that led me down the rabbit hole of synchronous events, prods and ticklings to another rather obscure name.
What emerged was a plethora of ancient myth; something about a serpent called Apophis and weighing your soul against a phoenix feather — intrigued? I hope so!
Next week I will break down the emotions that flooded in whilst painting this and just exactly what lead me to uncover the title of this painting, ‘Chaoskampf Demiurge’.
UPDATE: Read “What on Earth is a ‘Chaoskampf Demiurge’? You Seriously Need to Know This!” right now!
For now, the artwork is available as prints in a variety of different sizes and finishes below:
Let me know what comes through for you when you look at this painting (probably best to do it before I uncover the emotions behind it next week — leave your comments in the box below).
