The first time I saw Titian's “The Flaying of Marsyas” (also known as “Apollo and Marsyas”) was at the National Gallery of Art, Washington D.C, in the fall of 1990. The painting was included in a traveling exhibition titled: “Titian:Prince of Painters”. The artwork captivated me immediately. Upon initial encounter, I wasn’t sure if I should keep staring or turn away to divert my eyes. As a painter, I absorbed the intricate handling of the medium, the strong contrast of lights and darks and the subtle, yet exquisite use of color. However, the brutal imagery proved to be much more perplexing to grasp. After a few minutes of looking, I stood with an overwhelming sense of self-consciousness as if something about the works sacrificial story made it confusing to understand my place as a viewer. I had never encountered an artwork that both attracted and repelled to this level and with such potency. It was this oscillation that provided an aesthetic experience for me that has yet to be equaled in all my years of looking at paintings. As a young, abstract painter it indicated to me the power and persuasiveness of what figurative work, at its best, can do.
