Bacchus Giraffe…Drunken God of Mythology

Piece description from the artist

In this painting a woman is shown getting herself drunk to escape her worries. She is a devoted follower of Bacchus. In time, her head detaches from this dimension and floats into the welcoming arms of Bacchus the Giraffe. He licks her head as if it were a fruit, his saliva acting as an elixir, releasing her from the pain she is enduring, easing her from worry.

About Skip Myers

Austin, TX

The artwork of Skip Myers explores the world of dreams, symbolism, mythology, various religious belief systems, the human condition and our shared collective consciousness with all sentient beings. One art critic described him as an oneironaut, or one who explores alternative realities. These works are strongly influenced by personal stories, events from life painted on canvas, filtered through a process of organic abstraction and emotion, and built with vivid color and esoteric symbols.
