Misch technik oil and tempera on canvas
70cm x 100cm

As a Tarot card, Temperance is associated with the sign of Aquarius and represents an alchemic process of balancing the duality of water and fire. It brings the ‘dawn’ by taking the required time, care and focus to harmonize the Sun (solar consciousness of love, empathy & selfless devotion) with the Moon (unconscious turning spiritual concepts into action upon the Earth).

I feel it as a reminder to walk with Grace, acknowledging the similarity of patterns resonating on all levels; Divine, universal, personal and atomic. This tarot card traditionally depicts St Michael or an angel, but I wish to reflect upon our own Divine angelic natures when we harmonizes our psychic and material natures.

On a technical level, this is my learning piece for ‘misch technik’ – a most mind-bendingly complex method and a real alchemic journey into balance & patience! Deepest gratitude to my teachers, Daniel Mirante and Basia Wiacek, who were the embodiment of inspiration!

    I wish I could see the real one (well I would love to see all of your works in person). I have never heard of the “misch technik”, but it sounds like quite a journey. It definately produced an amazing piece here!

  • Thanks Tammy! A red canvas gets painted with white tempera, glaze yellow, paint tempera, galze blue, paint tempera etc. When i thought it was finished, i was told that was just the ‘underpainting’! crazy!
