Born of violence, born for violence. The Giants were destined to enter a harsh world with the weight of their mother's revenge on their backs.
Birth of a Giant, latex paint on canvas, 60 x 55" (152.4 x 139.7 cm), 2018
This painting references the genesis of giants that challenged Olympus in the event referred to as the Gigantomachy. Born of Gaia, the Mother Earth, and the blood of the Sky Father, Uranus, these giants were warlike and cruel. Their brutality and violent origins are here displayed in a disdain for the sun's light and warmth.
