Lilith - The Monsters Among Us

“Lilith - The Monsters Among Us” (20” x 24” encaustic) is one of the two collaborations I’ve been working on with Tony @very.far.away. It is finally finished and made its way back to California from Chicago! I think it turned out as a mesmerizing painting; how do you feel about it? Acrylic print is on its way too. It’s always such a great honor and pleasure to co-create with other artists! :)

The piece is about Lilith, Adam’s first wife, made from the same soil as Adam, thus she believed that she was meant to be his equal. According to mythologies, she refused to be subservient to her husband and lay beneath him, and eventually left Eden to pursue her own independence. God punished her for her disobedience by killing one hundred of her children every day.,Eden%20to%20gain%20her%20independence Her beauty captivated many artists, including the English poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti who said, “her enchanted hair was the first gold”, and Irish novelist James Joyce referred to her as “patron of abortions”. In most manifestations she represents chaos and seduction. The piece is based on Tony’s sketch (last image) that I took a bit further – I portrayed Lilith and her - somewhat consumed - lover bleeding flaming petroleum together, while she’s hauling at the moon (? or apocalyptic sun?) like a predator. Despite their dark nature, their sprouting desires still cannot resist growing towards the light.
