<em>Cyclops in Love I</em>
 

Mark Napier
Cyclops in Love I, 2007
Lambda print
24 x 32 in / 61 x 81 cm
Edition of 3

Displaying multiple perspectives of the same virtual form, the prints in the exhibit reflect the anxiety and tension of a transitional era of history. Named after the Cyclops, early artisans of Greek mythology, imagery in Napier’s recent prints metaphorically follow the birth, rise and fall of a being that lives and dies by its ability to fashion material forms. Historically the Cyclops were blacksmiths that forged weapons for the gods, and ultimately fell from grace as they were blamed for the destruction caused by their handiwork. In Cyclops in Love flesh tones and fragments of architecture appear frozen, as if shattering and re-forming in the same instant.
