Corey Moraes' first full edition of serigraphs - a form line skull design available in silver or gold: "Odyssey" explores the notion of life journeys. Though each path is different for all, our experiences share similarities when viewed through a human lens - deep down we are all the same. Cultures and belief systems are merely window dressing - the outermost of many layers that cover our bones.
Homer's epic poem "The Odyssey" tells of the long, arduous path for Odysseus, and for us, yet we all long for, and desire a greater calling - a higher purpose. "As we navigate our journey", Moraes says, "our chosen destination, our life experiences (both good and bad), determine our identity".
"How do we interpret our reflection? What do we see?", asks Corey. "Is it reality, or merely what we want to see?" The layers covering that which is the same in all of us; our bones; our foundation.
This limited edition silk screen print titled "Odyssey" by Corey Moraes was hand produced by the screen printing process. It is the only limited edition printing of this design. The artist has inspected and signed each copy in the edition. The printer has destroyed all trial copies and obliterated the printing stencils.
