Description In Wikipedia: In Greek mythology, the Teumessian fox (Greek: Alopekos Teumesios) was a gigantic fox that was destined never to be caught. The fox was one of the children of Echidna. It was said that it had been sent by the gods (perhaps Dionysus) to prey upon the children of Thebes as a punishment for some national crime.Creon, the then Regent of Thebes, set Amphitryon the impossible task of destroying this beast. He discovered a perfect solution to the problem by fetching the magical dog Laelaps, who was destined to catch everything it chased. Zeus, faced with an inevitable contradiction in fate (an uncatchable fox being pursued by an unavoidable dog) turned the pair of beasts into stone.
Pollux (Paul Morris), Los Angeles, California Member Since April 2007 Artist Statement Thanks for visiting my page!
Pollux is my pen-name. In one way or another, I've always scribbled, sketched, and painted. My goal is to plunge into the subterranean world that exists just beyond the conscious world -a sort of visit to a mad world with a round-trip ticket. My galleries are divided into basic topics: Gods, Animals, Mortals, Cities, Zodiacal Symbols, Jazz Musicians, Landscapes, etc.
I've self-published a number of comic and humor titles. I've published the graphic novels The Golden Helmsman, A Lime on a Rain-Covered Sidewalk, and Ferrex and Porrex, among others.
My acrylic paintings join seemingly irreconcilable objects together to create visually arresting, and sometimes jarring, images.
