About "In the light of Lilith"

“For beauty is nothing but the beginning of terror which we are barely able to endure and are awed because it serenely disdains to destroy us.”
----Rainer Maria Rilke

This is a painting about the archetype of Lilith which I have traced through Babylonian, Egyptian and Hebrew texts. Usually she emerges as a dark plutonic beauty, the bearer of the demons and devourer of children. I am presently writing a paper about her. She conveys a sense of sublime, the terror of the fat snake next to the sweet flowers-projecting discomfort within our comfort zone of beauty. For me she is an authentic and strong woman as opposed to Eve.

The painting was difficult to follow, to hold delicately. Each flower has her own story and needed attending to.
