The Chimera originates in Greek mythology, a beast with the head of a lion, body of a goat, and the tail of a serpent. In everyday language, it's come to mean something which is hoped for, but is impossible to achieve.
If to the ancient Greeks, the Chimera was a hybrid, fire-breathing monster, then why should we deserve it to be anything less than that? Joshua Hagler’s paintings are such untameable creatures, tearing away at the world as we know it, only to reveal our own violence, our own illusions, our own distorted image in the scattered remains. Human after all. - Kurt Snoekx
