The Cybernetic Demons of Matt McPherson

Matt McPherson has created a series he calls The Olympians.

“The Olympians are 13 freehand pen-and-ink triptychs which pay homage to the 13 Olympians of the Greek pantheon and their cohorts. Each drawing also alludes to a person of the artist’s own past that left a memory. Using only a credit card for a straight edge, The Olympians is an exercise in patience and catharsis.”

These drawings look like they were stolen from the Dimethyltryptamine realms and pasted onto 2D paper in our 3D world. I find it truly amazing that these were freehanded!

Apollo is the god of light, truth, and art. Unlike his twin sister Artemis, Apollo protectes prey and keeps predators at bay. His light exposes flaws and lies, but only at sunset and sunrise are perfect truths revealed.

Harmonia is the goddess of harmony, concord, and civility - or the lack thereof. The offspring of a bipolar, volatile relationship between Aphrodite and Ares, she gifted a beautiful necklace to all those that did not worship her. This "gift" brought misfortune and misery.

Orpheus was the god of music, poetry, and the stage. The son of Apollo and Calliope, Orpheus's ability to charm attracted an entourage of mortals. They followed him wherever he went and made his lyrics reality.

Phobos is the god of fear. Unlike Deimos, he is an intimate god who prefers proximity. His embrace causes trembling, and his stare causes paralysis.
