“ 'I am painting pictures which make me die for joy, I am creating with an absolute naturalness, without the slightest aesthetic concern, I am making things that inspire me with a profound emotion and I am trying to paint them honestly.' —Salvador Dalí ”
Osiris On The Table.
In ancient mythology, Osiris, Pharaoh of Egypt, was torn apart by his evil brother Seth, who was jealous of the way he was so beloved by his people. His grieving wife Isis collected the fragments of his body from the Nile and was so moved by seeing him again that her love brought him back to life. In the same way that Isis collected the torn-up pieces of her lover’s body, Dustin Yellin has pieced together sculpture, art and photography to create a series of nostalgic images encased in glass boxes.
’Osiris On The Table’, is a sculpture of the ancient man’s dead body weaved from vines, insects, waves and flames, with a slick of oil coming from the mouth. Like the rest of the exhibition, the piece combines hope with sadness, leaving the viewer unsure of how to feel.
