Goddess of love and Existentialist Mosquito
30 Sep to 27 Oct
Muvva Erf is the goddess of love, creation, chaos and destruction.
Whilst I was working on this character I realised that I had coincidentally stumbled upon the hindu archetype of Kali.
and that there are massive parallels.
I enjoy the tangents that occur during creativity.
The Muvva is mother to all creatures, loving and kind, she keeps the most vulnerable in a drawer close to her heart.
She operates from a place of pure love but do not mistake her for a pushover, she is also driven by emotions traditionally seen as negative.
Anger, sadness, despondency and disappointment.
Muvva Erf reacts and punishes also. There is a mechanical aspect to her thought processes and she will destroy and eradicate.
This work is a response to the current issue of climate change and preservation of the beautiful creatures that have equal rights to inhabit our earth.
Existentialist Mosquito was born one night whilst avoiding a mosquito, I asked myself, "Argh! What is his purpose?”
I speak through him, he is my voice quite often when I am considering my lifes purpose and my feelings.
He can be a pleasure seeker or a depressive failure.
He is full of self doubt and self criticism, one minute arrogant the next full of angst.
