Monotype and Oil on Hardboard 12″ x 24″
The second in my collaboration with Glass Olive, and like Choronozon before it, based on the writings of Aleister Crowley.
Binah is ‘understanding’ or ‘contemplation’. It is likened to a ‘palace of mirrors’ that reflects the pure point of light of Chokhmah, wisdom, increasing and multiplying it in an infinite variety of ways. In this sense, it is the ‘quarry’, which is carved out by the light of wisdom. It is the womb, which gives shape to the Spirit of God.
This is one of the oddest paintings I’ve ever created. I looked at it for months before I dove into it. It has a chaos that boils at it base. It also looks like a fly.
