Alchemical Studies l Stephen Linsteadt

Alchemical Studies I (Where is Uncle Now), oil on canvas, 120 x 100 cm, 2022 - $2700

An alchemical study showing the distillation of the Essence from the physical body.

"Alchemical imagery is one way of telling this same story in terms of getting the gold out of the base matter. . . The operation of the mythic meditation is to bring out, elicit, the gold of your spiritual character. You have to move into this slowly, and that's what ordeals are. The ordeal is a gradual clarification and purification of your life."

~ The Hero's Journey: Joseph Campbell on his Life and Work. Phill Coiseneau, 2003, p. 121
