DESCRIPTION

This exhibition of paintings and collages is called the Atlantean Years: 1970 to 1975  When I completed these works, I was studying subjects such as alchemy, mysticism, the occult, and mythology.

I was particularly interested in the legend of Atlantis, which parallels stories of the Garden of Eden, the Elysian Fields, and the Garden of the Hesperides. Each of these symbolic stories deals with the evolution of human consciousness and represents the main source of the Western occult tradition.
