the Lunar Muse

Throughout time, the Moon has been the subject of and inspiration for countless works of Art, Poetry, Writing, Music, Performance, Dance and Architecture.

Its mysterious allure casts a Magick and glamour upon the hearts and minds of Artists.  I have not consciuosly sought to have a Lunar influence in my Art.  It just always seems to appear in some way.  It is inescapable.  I dont entirely understand it, but I don’t question it.  It just is.

I can relate numerous examples of a series of uncanny coincidences that hint at something other, some influence that must be in play because things defy any terrestrial calculus or reasoning.

Winter

 ‘ WolF Moon / the Hunger ‘

This is a mysterious painting I did a while back.  I can’t tell you how, because I don’t know myself.

I can relate numerous examples of a series of uncanny coincidences that hint at something other, some influence that must be in play because things defy any terrestrial calculus or reasoning.

Here are a few of my creations that are heavily influenced by Lunar Musings.  Utilizing reclaimed scrap metal, they seem to evolve on their own and suggest their own best ultimate form.

by Rhea

 

Acrylics on canvas with blacklight.  I love to leave room for Art to do its thing and allow for a randomness and surprises.  An entire sublunary deep forest of exotic flora, this will be expanded to a large canvas.

‘The Lunar Arc of enDrakkar’ ~Rhea

This Artwork is extremely mysterious.  I had no idea what it would look like.  It just evolved.  It is influenced by books I was reading at the time.   ‘The Mystery of Love’ and ‘The WhiteGoddess’ and a book on Lunar math and Ancient stone age archeological sites and a book on Alchemy.

The Copper winged figure represents the Female.  Copper has the same Alchemical symbol as Venus.  The Iron figure represents Male.  These two figures Iron and Copper, are united by the 9 pedaled Silver Lunar Lotus.

‘ subLunary Rosa Mutablé ‘   ~Rhea

Eve in her moonlit Garden

The Ephemeral Sublunary Mutable Rose

it blooms on the eve of a New moon.
its pedals changing color
from Eve,
a Purple ~ Blue bud
to Night,
a Blood~Red bloom,
to Midnight,
Orange,Yellow
and an opalescent Silver like the moon.

lilting and weeping with morning dew,

like tears,

a final offering

subtly sweet,

Scenting the air
to

Earth

before Dawn;
to carpet
the ground
of her garden
and soften the
steps of her feet.
