MASCULINE ARCHETYPES (More images coming soon…)

In male dominated societies, there are symbols and figures that embody the combined qualities, thoughts, and behaviors of the culturally conceived masculine gender. When painting, my work is usually divine masculine energy focused rather than on the unenlightened or aggressive aspects. Although I try to capture the essence of this archetype, conceivably it is still translated or transmuted through my more feminine lens or voice. Some of the 3-15+ male archetypes are based on religion, psychology, and spiritual teachings. They are: The Innocent, Everyman, Hero, Outlaw, Explorer, Creator, Ruler, Magician, Lover, Caregiver, Jester, Father, Priest, Saint, and Sage.
