The Book of Revelation
Size 18” x 27”

This is a series of 10 pictures which responds to the text of the Book of Revelation, the last book of the Bible.
This series attempts to portray the events in the final book of the Holy Bible normally referred to as the Apocalypse.
The destruction of all things that we know in this physical realm is necessary for the glory to ultimately triumph. Revelation itself is a process of stripping away of the things that get in the way of us perceiving and finally seeing the Glory of God singing all around us in our physical world.
Revelation or enlightenment is an enlightened state in which the Glory of the Divine is seen shining through all things, as we turn and see and are able to recognise that reality. These illustrations trace the events in the text of the dismantling and destruction of our physical beings, replacing them with the ultimate reality of the New Heaven and the New Earth in which things earthly are imbued with the light of the divine.
