Lair of the Infernal Chicken

by Dan Cohen

Oil on Panel

10″ x 10″



Sometimes a painting is born just by the thought, “I feel like painting a chicken. Let’s see where this goes.”

The more I worked on it, the more I got the feeling that this was no ordinary rooster. He was a manifestation of an Underworld Lord, the king of Infernal Fowl.

Interestingly, through this process I discovered that “infernal” originally had nothing to do with the Christian concept of Hell or evil. Rather, it refers to the di inferi (Latin, “the gods below”), who were a shadowy collective of ancient Roman deities associated with death and the underworld. I like the thought that one of these shadowy deities is, in fact, a chicken.

“My Superhero Mission is to Re-Enchant the World. It’s all too easy these days to feel disenchanted, as though Magic and Wonder are dead and gone, encased in a tomb made of jaded cynicism and modern materialism. Magic and Wonder are still here of course, waiting to be acknowledged. Re-enchantment is attuning to the humming Soul of the World. It’s revealing the hidden layers of meaning that lie just below the surface of things. It’s playing with possibilities. It’s the feeling of a before unseen world crystalizing right before your eyes. Of peering into that unknown yet familiar world, then having the feeling that something is peering back.”
