  • The Androgyne

    Etching. 22" x 70"56 cm x 17.5 cm.

    This series is comprised of 24 individual prints, each the result of multiple permutations between 6 unique etched plates. The prints are shown here in groups of three.

    The imagery is a synthesis of superimposed images of Adam and Eve from an old icon on glass, a traditional form of painting found in Transylvania, combined with imagery from medieval alchemical manuscripts.

    “The Androgyne is the most abstract idea of humans about humans. Being an ideal form of existence, the Androgyne offers us the true spiritual autonomy thorough fully overcoming the contradictions and limits that hinder humans’ ability to have a cosmic experience and thus impede them to know reality”. Mircea Eliade
