Eros (1995)

Inspired by a dream, this image combines the beautiful youth of Apulieus’ fable, Eros and Psyche, with the world-shaping attributes of the Orphic Eros, the oldest of the Gods, who arose out of Chaos to create a living world. 

Aphrodite’s son incarnates the young face of this ancient Power, which breathes desire into everything that lives.  According to Hesiod, “the touch of Eros makes the barren Earth green.”– thus the forks of green life at his knees.
