The images presented are part of two Landscape Installation Series that were loosely based on the Sumerian Enuma Elish — Epic of Creation. It is the story of Tiamat, the Primordial Mother of All and the original holder of the Tablets of Destiny. With Tiamat as the source of all that he is, Apollo makes his appearance as emerging from the Dolphin Sea.
In the early days of the earth there was much chaos, but in this bubbling uncertainty was the universal chaos of original creation. Humanity did not yet exist and the earth itself was only beginning to ready itself for humanity’s arrival. The churning steaming ocean was a wild place, unpredictable were the forces that gathered, overlapped, searching for a place to reveal themselves.
The embodiment of this primordial chaos was, at one time, known to the universe as Tiamat, the Grand Protector and Creator of all that was and was to be. Tiamat is the most ancient holder of Knowledge and as we move towards the hopeful, but not guaranteed, evolution of humanity, a return to the most ancient creative being appears intrinsically connected to this transition. She asks to be Known and asks to be Shown. As we re-turn our eyes to the original Mother, we come closer to understanding the conflicting and confusing nature of humanity’s origins.
