Primus - Austin

18 x 24 - 3 color silkscreen - edition of 250 - Where do I begin with this? I'll just start, here goes: my life is ruled by three women, my mother and my wife symbolized in the profiles on the left and right, and my daughter represented beneath them . They are each chameleons capable of quickly changing their personalities. They are hypnotic and dangerous but always beautiful. The winged scarab (dung beetle) in the center is me. In Egyptian culture the dung-beetle places its egg in dung and rolls the dung into a ball to be heated by the sun. This created an association with the life-giving powers of the sun. It is believed that life also was centered in the heart so the dung-beetle amulet had powers to protect the heart.
