Mercury

78″ x 48″
Acrylic painting on board

The trickster, messenger of the gods. Gemini the twins and virgo the virgin. Mercurius was a hermaphrodite. The Roman god Janus is associated. Libido, ambiguity, duality.

Prints from the body with prints from foam rubber blocks help to show the duality of Mercury. This painting has a pair of painted trainers hanging from the bottom corners (not shown).
