Mephistopheles by Pandora-intheSKY
Mephistopheles
As an atheist, I have become fascinated with the Christian institution of Satan. The Devil, Lucifer, the Morning Star, Mephistopheles. Just imagining it. A singularity of all ostentation and lust and pleasure. Moreso, I think about the crimes attributed this personage; temptation to consider socially forbidden ideas and practices, the doubting of dogma, the brokering of the rejection of established custom for something new, and maybe better. I think about all that is welcomed by them, free love, free thought, questioning, innovation, creativity, diversity, alternatives, and apostasy, music, dancing, food, fucking, orgies, and unincriminated enjoyment of the body, the mind, the fruits of life, and the Earthly world. And finally, I think of all those sent to them, and who are accepted in their domain, lesbians, gays, trangendereds, scientists, inventors, animals, literally anyone from any religion outside the Abrahamic traditions, potentially anyone from within them, and the Rolling Stones.
Truly, there is evil in this world. But it comes from a lack of empathy, which I hold to be a verb. I say all this, again, as an atheist. But my reading has been that Satan is tolerant, accepting, open minded, free thinking, and undiscriminating. Pondering at the case as objectively as I can, I wonder if Satan might not be a highly representative and venerable exemplar of the values we in the modern day hold the very dearest.

A Midsummer Night's Dream by Pandora-intheSKY
A Midsummer Night's Dream
This is the title piece and inspiration for my recent show 'A Midsummer Night's Dream' exploring the myriad facets of pleasure. Many of the works for the show, including my own, aspired to portray the more nuanced, controversial, and difficult relationships we have with pleasure, but for this piece I indulged my hunger simply to delve into the erotic. The creation of this piece, blending drawings with Photoshop in intuitive, unplanned, and visceral configurations, was a totally new experience for me. It's one I have thus far found to be fruitful and cannot wait to continue expanding. It also speaks to my passion for creating metaphysical narratives with unorthodox but understandable devices. It was also an experiment in incorporating music into my work, and I hope something synesthetic comes across.

Graphite, vellum, Photoshop. 2014.

Pinch by Pandora-intheSKY
Pinch
This piece is part of a series exploring the theme of pleasure, and, the sometimes counterintuitive places we find it. Anyone in Vancouver can see this and the others at A Midsummer Night's Dream at Ayden Gallery opening August 15th!
