Vallarta Sun Gods

I was discussing the triptych concept with a friend the other day, saying I’ve been meaning to do another one.  It’s been a while since I did the three Marys of Bari, Italy. Apparently that was all the inspiration I needed…

The triptych is rooted in religious imagery and while that is a fascination of mine, here I am playing with iconography – the live man in the middle no less symbolic than his bronze and plaster compatriots.

What I love about doing a piece like this is discovering where it takes me, finding the thread that ties them together. The sun, the heavens, the glory of the beyond, with magnificent backstories… Triton forever reaching for Nereida, Mayan pole dancers spinning the world into being from the fibres of heaven and the baby Jesus adoring his father on high. Just splendid.

    1. So much to do and try… no time to waste!
      Me – I would kill to be in Puerto Vallarta right now… I’m so tired of the rain and damp and chill that just won’t quit… ugh ugh ugh… (that’s a trio of ughs – which means it’s true!)


  1. Very impressed by how seamlessly your triptych flows together.

    Puerto Vallarta does sound like heaven, except that I’ve been living in hades temperatures for days and want snow!
