                            'ASCENSION'   2009 to 2011 paintings

 

    The ASCENSION series began with my life-long interest in the more bizarre reaches of religious beliefs. Once a popular subject of Renaissance and Baroque religious art, a contemporary reworking of heavenly ascension offers a ready context in which to send unlikely figures floating in the sky. The Judgement Day cult which recently and mistakenly predicted the ascension into heaven on May 21 2011 of true believers was a source of much interest and inspiration for me. Apocalyptic beliefs continued with ‘2012 End of the World’ .
