Symbiosis by photographer Rik Garrett

Photography series by Rik Garrett with the idea of becoming one in union.

“An integral concept of Alchemy is “Solve et Coagula” – dissolve and combine. This is the secret key to manifesting the Philosoher’s Stone, Elixr of Life and immortality. This ideal is represented with the image of the Rebis – a two-headed hermaphrodite that holds the assets of both genders.

I have worked with this as my goal, erasing the boundaries of the human body. By applying paint directly to the surface of photographs, I have actualized an impossible dream – a physical union made tangible through desire. Through this process I have been able to visually and symbolically merge male and female into one body – the perfect being.”Symbiosis by photographer Rik Garrett (1) Symbiosis by photographer Rik Garrett (2) Symbiosis by photographer Rik Garrett (3) Symbiosis by photographer Rik Garrett (4) Symbiosis by photographer Rik Garrett (5) Symbiosis by photographer Rik Garrett (6) Symbiosis by photographer Rik Garrett (7) Symbiosis by photographer Rik Garrett (8) Symbiosis by photographer Rik Garrett (9)
