In Greek Mythology, Selene  is the goddess of the moon. She is the daughter of the Titans Hyperion and Theia.

And she is the sister of Eos, goddess of the dawn.

On the origin 4

In my research (Omphalos project) I start making realistic sketches of women and then try to change them, make them more “Gaia”.

And I also use different materials (charcoal, siberian coal, acrylic paint, black ink) and different sizes of paper. Sometimes the drawings are just 10 x 15 cm. And sometimes 50 x 70 cm.

This one is a sketch made with oil paint. 40 x 50 cm: MEDUSA

Gaia-Pythia 2

Finished Gaia-Pythia

Strange painting. Don’t know what to think of it, yet. But it surprises me. And that’s what I always tell my students: “Surprise Yourself!” So that’s probably a good thing.

DNA structures combined with this strange, ferocious woman. The beginning of the world,  the Ëarth Mother”.
