The Alchemical Wedding - Drawings - Dark Moon Series

Using the symbolism of astrology, during the last two years, while transiting Pluto (the lord of the underworld) squared the artist's natal Pluto, Moon (emotions and earliest conditioning) and Uranus (sudden illumination) and conjuncted his natal Sun (core sense of self), the dark, painful and hidden contents of the artist's 'shadow' became dominant in his conscious mind, forcing him into a Jungian confrontational healing odyssey not unlike Dante's 'Inferno.' This series of images is both a chronicle and a catharsis; an exorcism and an exclamation of personal truth. David Aronson - August 2002
Parenting and Death are both particularly brilliant
