Q & A With artist Mark Humes About Cthulhu
Why Did you make Cthulhu?
In my meditations and dreams, I am often confronted with shocking images and as art has always been about conveying emotions I was driven to create this work.
What does Cthulhu represent?
It is about giving a face to the end of all things. An ending comes for us all personally. I find acknowledging that fact drives people to want to live more fully.
What inspired Cthulhu?
Being confronted with my mortality in my meditations and dreams. The will to survive is never stronger than when one's life is threatened. I captured this vision as a reminder to pursue a life fully as an end can come at any time.
How did you make Cthulhu?
I used a now-obsolete graphics program I chose to keep a trade secret and the touchpad on my laptop computer.
What does The artwork Cthulhu mean?
It means embracing the fact life has an end and can come at any time. We have limited time before the destroyer of our world comes. Enjoy the time you have in this world.
