|| the lethe river ||
In Greek mythology, Lethe was one of the five rivers of the underworld of Hades. Also known as the Ameles potamos (river of unmindfulness), the Lethe flowed around the cave of Hypnos and through the Underworld, where all those who drank from it experienced complete forgetfulness. Lethe was also the name of the Greek spirit of forgetfulness and oblivion, with whom the river was often identified.
In Classical Greek, the word lethe literally means "oblivion", "forgetfulness", or "concealment". It is related to the Greek word for "truth", aletheia (ἀλήθεια), which through the privative alpha literally means "un-forgetfulness" or "un-concealment".
" Figurative and abstract, my works are reflections of myself, which I hope help those who look at them reflect on their lives. For me, the artist is a transmitter of perceptions. He must be able to accelerate the heartbeats or soothe the spectators, generate new sensations." - Maxence MA
