The sgraffito method used to create the images in this series is a surrender to the creative process. This image started as an oil pastel that was then completely covered in black tempera paint, with the hopes that it would reemerge with more character. Through scratching into the shadowy blackness, I reveal the oil pastel below. In this way textures, details, and a more complex image evolves. This process is symbolically meaningful to me and makes the work more potent. It represents the beauty that is found once we have accepted our own discovery process.
In many esoteric traditions, the symbol of the Orphic Egg represents the seed from which all things will manifest: all potential, bound and unbound. The serpent surrounding the egg symbolizes the great mysteries of how manifestations happen. Many see this symbol as the Cosmos encircled by the Creative Spirit. The name, Orphic Egg, comes from Greek Mythology. The Greeks named their mystery school after Oprheus, the son of a muse who descended into the underworld to retrieve his wife, Eurydice, after she was bitten by a viper. He used his musical gifts to charm Cerberus and convince Pluto to allow her to return to the land of the living.
This image came through a dream of an orange female spirit cloaked in the blue of the ocean tending the egg. I felt the need to tend the balance of fire and water to welcome new potential. I felt the energy of an hourglass, and how we must accept dueling energies to create new potentials. Within the egg is the potential for all things. Can you hold that power, and tend it with perfect love and trust, as you manifest your own potential?
