1988, Erasable crayon, 16 x 20 framed. By Chris Wayan.
In Greek myth, Andromeda was a princess chained to a sea-rock, to appease a dragon. Perseus, riding Pegasus, rescued her.
I dreamed I met that dragon, before he flew to her. He wasn't what I expected. Part sea-serpent, part man--or rather, men. For like Frankenstein's monster, he had been sewn together. He had four quadrants: thoughts, senses, feelings, and intuitions. The monster was that rarity, a WHOLE PERSON--though his parts came from others, and his seams showed.
He spoke in a lean dark voice full of poetry, of the need for balance between darkness and light...
Only... did she know that? Did she know her own strangeness... and strength?
