#tbt “Initiatrix”, 2008 - 55”x32”, human blood on #Fabriano - “On the one side is the great Initiatrix, the heavenly mother of Zohar, the Isis of Egypt, the Venus-Urania of the Platonists...throned upon the world and setting one foot upon the head of the magical serpent. She extends her two hands in such a manner as to form a triangle, of which her head is the apex; her hands are open and radiant, thus making a double triangle, with all its rays directed towards earth, representing the emancipation of intelligence by labor.” / Collection: @hr_giger_museum #initiatrix #primordialfeminine #eliphaslevi #vincentcastiglia #remedyfortheliving #2008 #hrgigigermuseumgallery #humanblood #painting #figurative #surrealism #art #nyc

“This is a deeply personal film for Vincent and I am honored to have worked closely with him on the film. I feel many people will see this film as inspirational, even though it is a dark ride through pain and suffering. Vincent’s life journey, much like his art, reflects both the dark and ultimately the light that shines through the darkness.” - John Borowski #bloodydisgusting #bloodlinesdocumentary #johnborowski #vincentcastiglia

Today the trailer for Bloodlines was released. This project was a whirlwind of epic proportions (in terms of the material contained within, which had only ever been processed through my art prior). The first cut was so extreme / explicit, I wouldn’t have survived the release of this film. Having found a delicate balance within the material, the final result (still very heavy for me to watch) I believe respects all parties, living and dead, and is still only a minute glimpse into the circumstances that shaped my existence. Art has been my ‘salvation’ in the most literal sense. By sincerely submitting mind and body to the surfaces (canvases) I work on, portraying with brutal honesty what was happening inside, a string of what I regard as ’eternal truths’ were unearthed, and an entirely transformative process began. Through the imagery I posed questions (rooted in reality and my own existence), and received the ‘answers’ sought via the art’s individual existence. It began as art therapy at its most fatalistic, severest wrung, it’s only aim being distraction and coping. But with just a lifetime of persistence, and a commitment to authenticity (no matter how horrific or repellant that authenticity may have looked to viewers at any given time) the work’s become the guiding force of my life, and quite literally my progeny (and flesh of my flesh), which I trust in with all my heart, above all else. It’s what I suppose buddhists term “dharma”, or mystics might call “true will”. And for a project which began as a documentary about my artwork and life, in the end, it may actually serve a higher purpose entirely (a message of hope for those who need it most). That’s my sincerest wish anyway. The most heartfelt thanks to all involved, who’ve supported and truly been there, and an even greater thanks to all that haven’t, who’ve tried with all their might (overtly and covertly) to tear down, spread lies, and try to destroy me every step of the way - you’ve helped make me and my relationships stronger (impenetrable), and simply put - helped take out the ‘trash’. Much respect and many thanks to all, the gods, and the garbagemen. #bloodlines

Honoring HRG today, and always #inlovingmemory #hrgiger 🖤 #Repost @hr_giger_museum with @get_repost

It's been four years since HR Giger has left this world. His soul has remained immortal and vibrant in each of his works and we wish to thank him today for all the strength that emerges from his paintings. A strength that invites us to look deeply at our soul and to probe our fears and aspirations. His presence is missing in this universe but thanks to his work we can feel it permanently.

The Museum wishes a good visit to all the people who will come to gather on this day and all the other days.

RIP
HR Giger 05.02.1940 – 12.05.2014
