Art Contests Accepted Artists
Charlotte, North Carolina USA
My experience of organized religion and the oft hurled epithet -Adam and Eve not Adam and Steve- led me to recast the characters within the story of Genesis. Childhood indoctrination into a traditional conservative faith impeded my self-actualization and defined my natural inclination as something perverted and shameful. In redefining the moment of transgression, sexual awakening becomes an act of liberation and knowledge. The apple’s golden hue elevates the fruit to an object of quest rather than a guarantor of death.
This limited-edition lithograph was created using light sensitive aluminum plates, six layers were drawn atop Mylar and transferred via photo development before adding hand-colored detail and application of 12K gold-leaf.
