An inspired and inventive take on the biblical epic of Adam & Eve in the Garden of Eden. Blaine was a unique talent, and counter culture avant-garde artist who worked outside of the confines of the mainstream. A life-long bohemian, his work became increasingly sexual and marginalized from the norm of illustration art, and as time went on he counted the magician Dunninger among his closest friends, and most important patrons. His eerie and erotic style bore witness to his fascination with dark arts.
This artwork re-envisions the garden of Eden as a puppet show controlled by a horned female Medusa-like satyr, the image is harrowing and classic Blaine. We find this artist to be currently under-valued and have admired his original paintings greatly when we run across them.
