Amor leaves to Psyche. Tribute to Joseph Heintz the Elder

Neon lights are burning in Piccadilly

Amor leaves to Psyche

Oil lamp and kerosene

Psyche is free

Love blind belongs to fools

Who is the perfect stranger?

Psyche on the edge of suicide descends to the hells

She convinces Cerberus, convinces cynical boatman

She tempts fate, drinks oblivion

Compassionate Amor saves her from amnesia

Free Amor asks for clemency

I´m not without Psyche, I´m not without Amor

Both Gods will be connected forever

Window to Irene's house.                 The lamentation of Sebastian

1_The title:

Irene from the Greek "That which brings Peace" (personified peace and wealth), in mythology is one of the daughters of Zeus and Themis (law of nature) is one of the three Hours of the second generation with her sisters which were Eunomia (laws) and Dice (justice). Window to the House of Peace, but this window is formed from a drawer and wants to make an allegory of the "Pandora's Box" where hope is the last thing that remains as a Cassandra warning that no one will want to know.

 

Sebastian of the Greek "King of the universe" or "The humble ruler", represents the human race and how he transmits in his mythological work again and again his condemnation and curse, his constant lamentation.

The lack of orthography "Beweihnigung" (in German correctly Beweinung) as a consequence of hierarchical order, good education or education in general is only available to the privileged, it is not for everyone, books were not made for all humans.

 

2_The curtains:

The curtains cover or conceal the truth, like the eyes of Oedipus and like the eyes of Elektra (repentance and shame, honor and revenge). They cover in particular one of the shadows at the bottom of the painting that represents the mother. But they do not cover all the work, it comes to say in the end that the truth is available to everyone, but not everyone wants to understand or assume it.

 

3_The lamp:

The lamp represents the Sun and Technology. It refers to the myth of Prometheus and the sacrifice of the human being that has been repeated since primitive times in pursuit of the progress and progress of the species. The Sun is at its zenith and thanks to Technology we can understand it or at least we will keep trying. It represents the father too.

 

4_The hairs:

On the floor of the painting there are lots of hairs, they want to make us understand that we are animals trying to evolve, we have realized our human condition and we want to be something more than animals, we are now super-developed animals but we still maintain our culture in the background. Another thing they want to refer to is the myth of Adonis, they would be metaphorically the hairs of the boar that killed this because of the perversion of Aphrodite.

 

5_The center:

The figure that lies in the bed is Sebastian, who has been taken to Irene's house after suffering the martyrdom of the arrows, the seated figure is Diocletian who comes to see Sebastian.

Both figures represent the betrayal of two lovers who are faithful to their ideals, the looks are not crossed but both are observed and try to maintain a physical contact, playing with the Renaissance idea where the saints are stripped and make apology to sexuality and naturalism of the ancient Roman or Greek era where it is known that this became a homosexual icon.

 

Diocletian is dressed in black with a yellow cape and a pink thong that can not be seen since he is sitting, represents military power and authoritarianism and what hides his sexual inclination because in the past the Romans were against the molicie (softness), for them it was not wrong to have homosexual or bisexual relationships, what was wrong was to submit if you were a person of more power than the other (equality could not exist and every relationship had to be one of submission).

 

Sebastian has received his punishment by order of Diocletian or Maximian, has 23 arrow wounds one of them has left him blind in one eye because Sebastian has been identified with the figure of Apollo and this in turn with the figure of Horus. It represents the power of antiauthoritarian ideas, where its new ideology causes it to reject its old formation, education and culture to sacrifice itself for the new more moderate or more progressive tendency, where it believes that life has more meaning and becomes nobler.

 

Under the yellow bed (betrayal) where the savannas are blue (masculinity) there is hidden a series of pink remnants (femininity) that want to represent the androgynous of human beings, where both genders share the same feelings regardless of their reproductive system .

 

It represents the present, the lack of homogeneity, how the gregariousness endures and there are no equals, the eternal discussion between good and evil and what is good and what is evil.

 

6_Stable table:

The mirror wants to represent the mirror of Aletheia (Greek truth) and Veritas (Roman truth) where we should recognize ourselves and where our disorders and mental illnesses are reflected, the myth of Narcissus as an example of self-centeredness. In this mirror is stuck a pink triangle that wants to remind us what the Nazis did in concentration camps with homosexuals under Article 175 of the old Germany, reflects the madness and intransigence that we can become humans.

It also reflects the other part of the work as if there were a double world, as the left and the right can become the same, as the past, the present and the future are united by a reflection.

 

The things that are on the table, three bottles to represent the trinities and myths of different cultures, as examples in alchemy: sulfur, salt and mercury; the forces of matter: action, reaction and inertia; Kepler's laws; the main ideas: universal, particular and singular; the types of thought: idea, judgment and reason; the reasoning: deductive, intuitive and inductive; the primary instincts: nutrition, reproduction and gregariousness; of the myths: Horus, Isis and Osiris; Brahma, Vishnu and Shiva; Baal, Melkart and Astarte; Chaos, Gea and Eros; and in the tarot card three is the Empress.

Five glasses to represent the human condition: death, reproduction, power, work and free time; the fifth essence the ether or the spirit; the five senses; Leonardo da Vinci's man; to the staff; and in the tarot card five is the High Priest.

Fifteen cigarettes of which ten are whole to represent perfection, the series of ten (commandments, the plagues that struck the Egyptians, ancestors between Adam and Noah, between Noah and Abraham) in the tarot card ten the Wheel of Fortune. Five are butts to represent the human and his addiction again; returning to the number fifteen to represent the days that the moon takes again to full and the steps that the Virgin ascended in the temple of Jerusalem; and in the tarot card fifteen is the Devil.

A lighter, a knife, a box of tobacco and an ashtray to form the number four and make reference to the series with this as for example: the aces of the cards, the cardinal signs, the elements, the seasons, the secrets of the Sphinx, the Horsemen of the Apocalypse, the Gospels, the domains of the universe in the Bahman; and in the tarot card four is the Emperor.

In total there are 27 things on the table to make a game where 2 +7 = 9 to reach the nine Greek Muses.

 

The cube with cottons to represent human genealogies, since depending on which family we are born we live worse or better, the saying "live between cottons", to re-allude to hierarchies.

 

The stool with the plate in which are the remains of threads or points of the wounds, a safety pin, a needle and a pincers, to represent medicine, the healing of physical illnesses and our progress in these terms, where the law of nature is surpassed by man as we live more years than in the past thanks to our progress and dodge better and more time to death.

 

This corner represents the past, medical progress, life and death, the myth of Cerberus and Hades.

 

7_Standard Queen:

The picture of Queen where it contains the four figures of the musical group transvestite in their famous song "I want to break free" a clock, a staircase, a painting and a sofa, to make reference to our time and to the eternal eighties, because it seems that time would have been stuck in them, postmodernism, capitalism and communism, HIV, the struggle for sexual identity, excesses, the most famous gay of our time, lack of privacy, understanding, empathy, music and progress.

 

The broom is an analogy of the whip of truth in the picture of Jean-Léon Gérôme, of the witches who were condemned, and of the gods Horus and Apollo and their resemblance to Sebastian those who sweep the plagues and purge.

 

The bucket with remains of green clothes and blood to make reference to the war, especially to the modern war I and II WW, to its consecutive ones in Vietnam, Cambodia, Iraq, Iran, Afghanistan and Syria. In general to armed conflicts either by guerrillas or by official militias. The eternal war the myth of Mars.

 

The cube with 23 arrows and blood to represent obsession and greed, are cloves disguised as arrows to represent the number of nails of Christ as well as pieces of cross that have been sold throughout history as relics. The dry feathers to represent the myth of the Sirens to which the Greek Muses stole their feathers.

 

The leopard to represent love and its Egyptian myth as Hathor and Bastet as are alter egos of Sejmet and suffer the dissociative disorder of identity.

 

The basin with bandages and blood the rebirth and resurrection, the myth of the Book of the Dead with mummification, healing and the new being.

 

8_The black shadows:

Fifteen shades in total to form fifteen figures representing the fourteen signs of the Zodiac plus the Moon that is hidden behind a curtain. They also represent Eris (Greek discord) plus their fourteen children. The mythological evolution from the primitive human who painted in the caves figuratively first animals and later the progress towards the anthropomorphic until the transformation of the self. And finally the myth of Plato's cave.

 

9_Aquario and Dolphin:

There are thirteen nuts that form the constellations of Aquarius and Dolphin in their view from the earth in the month of September (Virgo) to represent the myths of these constellations that include Zeus and Ganymede and Apollo and Dionysus. There are eight nuts in Aquarius where the first one is of different size to represent the number one, and the next seven of different size and color for the number seven, in Dolphin five golden nuts to represent the number five, all thought to take out the number 175 again to emphasize Article 175, the price of the table was 175 euros and the sum of the digits 1 + 7 + 5 = 13 which are the children of Ceto (Greek myth) number of bad luck and letter of the tarot Death.

 

Nuts were chosen to represent the hexagon, one of the most perfect forms in nature as an example the volcanic formations that remember organs among others, also to make an allegory of the bees and the interpretation of the working people to the highly efficient service, and to represent the mothers because in German they are called like that to the nuts (mutters) and therefore to the mass to the human reproductive system.

 

10_The moral:

I was proposed to make an adaptation of the San Sebastian myth, I investigated and came to the following conclusions, myths are a form of primitive psychology, they want to warn us of our defects as humans, among them the defects that have to do with order, power, sexual relations, reproduction, the success of the species, progress, our life and our death. It is clear that the history that is repeated in the myths is that of corruption and betrayal and they are prolonged in a tradition that is changing little by little from figures but essentially maintaining the same concepts.

 

I can distinguish the following premises among these concepts: We are subjectivized objects, we can not respect ourselves, we can not respect others, it is all about use and disuse. Children should not be corrupted, humans should not be treated as sexual or power objects, because our evolution depends to a great extent on this, we must avoid inbreeding and gregariousness and try to reach relationships that imply something beyond what we still understand today as freedom.

 

Clarification of the latter, myths inherit their disorders even humans, not that they are simply inherited is that we have not been involved enough in understanding, we are not able to self-govern, very few know what is self-knowledge and self-control. Predominantly a mass of human beings with a strong and ingrained dissociative identity disorder, in the world we still have a bestiary of gods and I see how polytheism predominates in the following way, we are all gods or we serve as gods for others, we have a complex of Oedipus, Elektra, Narcissus, Cassandra, Irene, Prometheus, Mars, Venus, Chronos, Gea, Zeus, Era, Dionysus, Apollo, Sebastian ... As an example the famous and leaders whom people idolize while idolizing to themselves or to martyr themselves, losing control and constantly resuming it since this is the balance that the government of madness supposes, it is very delicate and fragile.

 

Individualism is at the service of collectivism because the species predominates taking all possible ground, destroying the other species that we will now resuscitate conveniently to lock ourselves in our ego, we are the ones who have control of this sphere but we do not have control over ourselves, we have abhorred naturalism but we are still fierce animals, and finally the natural order is not surpassed by our law.

Cherry tree

Based on the Japanese style of "Oribon" books. Almost calligraphic emphasis in the contours and powerful effect, does not attempt to reproduce the natural play of lights and remnants, does not reflect brightness or reflections, but tries to give the objects displayed a look of roundness or plasticity through conventional shadows and resources. Nature does not appear or interpret as something natural, but manifests itself as a visual material and as an inspiring and imaginative work.

Aluminium 13Al

The composition of circumferences to include electrons in a disordered way where the orbit is not perceived around the nucleus of the atom represent elements of the periodic table as if they had been photographed in full motion. The number of electrons per layer is distinguished by the different colors and sizes of the circles as well as by their filling depending on the element and its exact number of electrons per layer. The colors chosen refer to the different colors of these elements in their different physical states. Example Aluminum 2, 8, 3 where there are represented 2 small circles of light blue color filled with silver dots, 8 large dark green circles filled with light blue dots, 3 orange circles smaller than the previous ones.

Tortoise

Represents the waste of life in its struggle for survival.

Ethnic

The ethnic groups are sociocultural groups that share traditions and history, they usually live in a territory that is not delimited by state borders. Belonging to an ethnic group does not mean having common genetic traits. The ethnic groups that generally share genetic traits are products of isolation, examples the tribes of Australian aborigines, the tribes of Eskimos or the indigenous tribes of the Amazon. The term ethnicity has been used and often used for demagogic purposes, making believe that those belonging to an ethnic group are better than others of other ethnic groups or better people who do not belong directly to any or do not feel represented with such ethnicity, examples Extremist groups confuse ethnicity with race, but the only human race that exists is Homo Sapiens, being the other subgroups determined in difference to their morphological development derived from their process of adaptation to the geographical space and ecosystem. I represent the different ethnic groups and how they belong to a single race, Homo Sapiens, in spite of the existing subgroups, drawing the contour of the same color and the fillings in the same color style to make the idea that all the ethnic groups share customs and traditions as well as genetics despite the isolation.

You killed her

The woman is not born, she is made.

When she is mistreated,

When she is raped,

When she suffers,

When she commits suicide,

When she is murdered,

You create she,

You killed her.

Social construction

A social construction is an institution that, as a result of actions based on knowledge or learning, generates or transforms them into routines of individuals who acquire roles as social agents.

These routines foster the creation of an institution that determines the content of knowledge or learning and legitimizes social actors within the same social construction.

 

In other words, it is a way of defining terms that maintain the explanation of what has been said for a certain period of time, thereby creating an objective reality based on the subjective reality of social actors, sometimes based on objective knowledge. The meaning varies and the legitimacy as a long-term solid pillar does not remain static, but is changed and modeled by the trend change of the social actors, who are still obliged to continue to build new institutions because the previous ones become superfluous.

 

The social constructions are presented in the form of a Rorschach test. Number one basing on the concept of sexuality and how it is conditioned by the political-social context, as part of an idealization of the individual's freedom through sexual desire in his quest for balance.

The social constructions represented in the form of a Rorschach test. Number four is the economy, this emerges as a routine of administration of the accumulation of matter and the accumulation of power, the need for exchange of matter and the flow of influences in the power relations of society. It becomes an institutionalized apparatus coexisting with the society that legitimates it.
