Artist's Description

‘Cosmic Serpent’
ink and gold paint
Japan, 2007

from the exhibition ‘Visions of MU’

This piece was inspired by the book ‘The Cosmic Serpent’ by Jeremy Narby, inwhich he explores the universal myth of the serpent throughout cultures all over the world as a being which guards knowledge. While in Japan this concept resonated particularly strong as I would visit Buddhist temples with enormous and beautiful murals of serpent like dragons painted above meditation halls as a kind of gatekeeper to the deeper realms of insight. It was as if the danger and fear created by the image of the dragon were merely a test of one’s courage to surpass these obstacles to gain greater insight.
