Las Mascaras > The Sorcerer's Apprentice

The Sorcerer's Apprentice is another trickster spirit that visited the artist in her dreams. This piece carries themes of tonic fascia, hot and visceral deep crawling skin layers of sublimated anger and voicelessness turned into enchantment. The figure was a hybrid being. An octopus, and cuttlefish combined with tiger skin patterns in red and black in a hermaphrodite form with the head of this mask. The dream figure told her she was part of a "drowning myth". The sculpture is the thoughtform visualization of the erotic.

"powerful spirits should only be called by the master himself" - from the Sorcerer's Apprentice by Goethe

"the demon that you can swallow gives you its power."

"In Arab lore Karina is a horned Demoness/djinn spirit. Her name derives from ancient Arabic "qarn" which means horn. Another name for this entity is Umm al-Leil. Which is the same woman as Lilith first wife of Adam. Qarn, carn, horn, horny, carnivorous. Somehow at its root is it originally a female attribute. It's the female faction of this energy that would first resort to violence against the male tribe due to unfulfilled libidinal desires. Lilith is also known as a nocturnal "female night being/demon", and is a "female storm demon associated with wind."
