Sagittarius

Sagittarius is an original oil painting on canvas from the Zodiac Series. 90 x 70 cm. Only one available

Classical legend claims that the Greek Centaur Chiron placed Sagittarius in the heavens to guide the Argonauts in their expedition through Colchis.

The symbolism connected to Sagittarius is very ancient. Cuneiform inscriptions found in Mesopotamia refer to Sagittarius as ‘The Strong One’, the ‘Giant King of War’ and mention him under the guardianship of Nergal, whom the Mesopotamians identified with Mars. The inherently aggressive nature of Sagittarius seems to have been largely forgotten today through its association with the more idealistic attributes. Sagittarians are choleric in their temperament and are known for their exuberance and extroversion. The volatile influence of Mars can set their fiery light ablaze. In this work it is the striving, goal orientated aspect that I haves focused upon, showing the rider aiming her arrows at a heavenly target.

Also available as a limited edition print

Incredible artwork! Really unique! Gives unique feeling in the room where we have it and its energy feels very alive. It projects something special to the whole house; like a divine protection.

The intersection of true artful human expression and well-tended subconscious emanations - this is how I see Jake's art, and especially 'Gemini.'
I was delighted to come across Jake's art. The process of discovery and acquisition of the print have been wonderfully human and pleasant. Mark is an absolute delight in correspondence. I can't wait to have the print back from the framers' and hang it on my wall. I may just place a chair before it and sit with it when I feel in need of a meaningful conversation.
Thank you, Jake & Mark

Dit is het tweede werk dat ik heb gekocht van Jake. Het intrigerende The Lady Vanishes uit 2013 smaakte naar meer, waarop ik besloot mijn verzameling aan te vullen met Spiritus Sanctus, een totaal ander werk (kleiner en op op paneel) uit 2015. Gekocht via de website, dus een gokje hoe het zou uitpakken. Maar ik heb er geen spijt van. Het is een mooie uitbreiding, waar ik met veel plezier en bewondering van geniet.
