Artist's Description

Alkonost and Sirin is a diptych, they are the two sides of the medal, the opposite of each other, and together they form a Conjunction – the Union of the Sun and the Moon of the alchemists. Alkonost and Sirin are the mythical half-women, half-bird of Russian folklore. Alkonost represents the energy of the Sun, and Sirin, which joins it at the wing, represents the receptive energy of the Moon. Joined together they form a powerful archetype, a presence of a balanced energy of Yin and Yang. I used bright fluorescent colors to show Alkonost as a happy magnanimous Being, with golden leaf to add texture.

Oil, golden and silver leaf on canvas.
