Cupid, the eternal bad boy of eros (and Eros, appropriately enough, is one of his other names), frequently rears his head when the mind/body problem is discussed outside of philosophy. But in this extraordinarily detailed picture by Nathan Spoor, the winged archer's head (indeed, his very presence) seems of secondary importance to the overall scheme of design. There is an act of worship being performed by identically matched devotees on either side of the ethereal messenger; the two figures raising their hands in salutary fashion. Directly above the object of devotion is an anatomical fantasy or nightmare; a developing embryo within a facial "sheath" and beneath a cerebral tangle that's obviously keeping its thoughts to itself. And surrounding all are the faintly discernible hills and towers of some unknown land or kingdom.

Not your average valentine, no.

Nathan Spoor is an artist and writer living in Los Angeles, CA, whose work is highly regarded by several prestigious collections and publications worldwide.

A practitioner and student of Suggestivism, Spoor’s paintings involve images of transition and growth; fluid narratives that chronicle a world rich with the mystery, joy, pain, and delicate balance of personal and spiritual evolution. Believing that continuous study of technique and process are critical to his own growth as an artist. No image or canvas is too precious to wipe, repaint, and even burn on his own journey to discovery and expression. In this way, Spoor makes a personal and transformative connection with each piece that for him lives on beyond the finished works.

With a writing style that shows an impressive passion and understanding of the arts in context, Spoor continues to bring challenging and informative text to readers of such internationally acclaimed publications as Hi Fructose, BL!SSS, Juxtapoz, Grand Central Press and The Surfer's Journal in an intelligent and educated fashion.
