The 7th edition to the 13th Grape multiples - "Picasso's Castration or Black Sails"
An accumulation of references and symbols to and of the mythical minotaur with a special nod to Picasso's obsession with the image. Made mainly of materials found in Madison Wisconsin, the layers will be named here for the recipient's own interpretation.
Under the mask "Minotauromachy" overlayered with a stencil made from a dorsal view of a corn maze shaped like a cow. There is also a tipped in castration tool in the composition.
The entire activity of lifting layers is very important to this piece and references the legend of Theseus finding his father's sword under a great stone as depicted in the 1643 painting by Reynaus Levieux de Nimes. Also the themes of divination and scrying are present in this work.
