Adrian Dominic Artshow

"A Contemporary View Of The Revelation Of John The Divine" Artshow




Artist Adrian Dominic humbly presents "APOKALUPSIS: A CONTEMPORARY VIEW OF THE REVELATION OF JOHN THE DIVINE"  In this series, Adrian ambitiously attempts to illustrate characters from the most abstract and visually confrontational book of the Holy Bible.  Inspired by a genuine search for knowledge of self and freedom from spiritual dogma, this series approaches characters with respect to the descriptions of the ancient texts and attempts a certain level of accuracy while instinctively and naturally infusing the sense of spiritual urgency and emergency currently prevalent in many of the world's aware and seekers of personal truth.  With these very old and powerful symbols, reintroducing them to the audience to bring about a dialogue of ancient human spiritual conditions and how they are more than relevant in our modern fast moving times, outside of the dogmatic constraints of judgement.  His goal is to truly inspire and challenge the audience to see where we each stand in this epic tale and to see their own reflection in the characters intentions.

Located in the Fine Art Gallery
