Artist's Description

“The creation of something new is not accomplished by the intellect but by the play instinct acting from inner necessity. The creative mind plays with the objects it loves.”
~Carl Jung

Composed in Photoshop with many layers, parts of the image have had background removed, and were placed back into the image. Effects, filters, flood filters, and textures have been applied. This is a very small portion of the triptych known as “Garden of Earthly Delights”

After endless hours studying the entire Triptych at high resolution (not to mention 2 hours to download the 100 MB file with a lousy connection), my thoughts turned to wondering about this artist…seems to me he was very prophetic, surreal, and futuristic in his work of this masterpiece. This will become a series I am creating done with small portions of the original image to show the futuristic mind this artist had. I am just so intrigued by this work.

The Garden of Earthly Delights is the modern title given to a triptych painted by the Early Netherlandish master Hieronymus Bosch. It reveals the artist at the height of his powers; in no other painting does he achieve such complexity of meaning or such vivid imagery. Art historians and critics frequently interpret the painting as a didactic warning on the perils of life’s temptations.Twentieth-century art historians are divided as to whether the triptych’s central panel is a moral warning or a panorama of paradise lost. American writer Peter S. Beagle describes it as an “erotic derangement that turns us all into voyeurs, a place filled with the intoxicating air of perfect liberty”. The original image was painted in oils on Oak, circa 1490-1510.
