Saint Guépard (after Bassano, Dr. Moreau)

by Dan Cohen

"Saint Guépard" An oil painting by Dan Cohen

Oil on Panel

9″ x 12″


The inspiration for this piece began after viewing the Byzantine and Renaissance wing of the Getty Center Museum in Los Angeles. In particular, I was fascinated by their color palettes and detailing. I wanted to create something reminiscent of that work, but my own take on it. In addition, I have always been compelled by H.G. Wells’s book, the Island of Dr Moreau, which I read several times since I was young (as well as the 1977 movie). I love the religious and anthropological messaging, creepy animal hybrids, dark medical experiments, and general weirdness. So, this piece emerged. I kind of think of them as a saint-like figure among the Beast Folk, in an alternate timeline.

“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.”
