‘’Yaldabaoth’’ I consider myself a freethinker. As a freethinker: I reserve the right to pledge my complete allegiance to an atheist agenda today. And tomorrow: swear by the gods that I’ve been enlightened by the enthusiastic revelations of a charismatic preacher. I claim no concrete religious convictions. Yet, do, enjoy entertaining the notion that there might be an omnipotent deity who may or may not interact with and watch us. As cowardly, un-loyal, and unreliable as that may seem. It is my unsustainable modality. And with this scrambled perception I present to you one of my oldest paintings: ‘’Yaldabaoth’’ For those unfamiliar with Gnosticism: Yaldabaoth Is the offspring of Pistis Sophia (36th Archon) who begot Yaldabaoth during a pre-creation immaculate conception of sorts. He is described as an androgynous or lion-like being. Other interpretations extending beyond the Nag Hammadi Library (my source of reference) go as far as referring to him as a monstrosity. Ignorant and arrogant in nature. After his birth, his mother (Pistis Sophia) saw him moving in the depths; and called out to him ‘’O, youth, pass over here’’ which is interpreted as ‘’Yaldabaoth’’ (hearing this) he named himself ‘’Yaldabaoth’’ still ignorant of the power of Pistis Sophia. He went on to create a dwelling place for himself (Heaven) and a footstool (Earth) and the story goes on, increasing in complexity and dynamism. Unfortunately, the caption area is an insufficient platform for delving any deeper into the stories behind some of these paintings. I hope this short description was enough to clarify the mythos of this painting and deter any zealous Christians or fanatical ideologs from classifying me as an irredeemable Satanist. Thanks to everyone who took the time to read. And perhaps someday, through another medium, we could do a more in-depth analysis of some of these paintings and get to the root of their underlying meaning and possible interpretations.
