Artist's Description

455 × 610

Acrylic on wooden panel, braced on back with pine bars.

The second painting in my new series “Portal of I” based entirely on the debut album of the same name by Melbourne band Ne Obliviscaris

This piece was inspired by the song:

OF THE LEPER BUTTERFLIES

“oh why?
oh why the butterfly of man?

oh why?
oh why precious beauty?
with eyes that speak tongues
foresight and memory, maelstrom wormholes
behind, the vast passion
a wish is made upon a nebula
from the leper’s kiss

Conjuring ordered chaos
Kaleidoscope in motion
adorned a porcelain mask,
O’er the enigma… Pierrot of the garden
Where light parts way
The Leper has come home…

I, Leper
…Why. Why?
I, Leper
…Why?
