BELIAL, Transmogrification #4, Fire Portrait by Nawfal Johnson 

Title:  “BELIAL, Transmogrification #4“.

Creation Date: 10 Dec 16.

“Fire Portraits” Series.

Year:  2016.

Influence:  “To Reign in Hell” novel by Steven Brust.

Art Photographs:  Photography of fire shaped into Portrait-like imagery, of the characters, angels, in “To Reign in Hell”, written by Steven Brust.

Note  1:  After doing the first art photo, I said to myself, “I’m seeing some faces from Brust’s novel in this image, and I need to investigate, and work this out further to see what develops.”  Note 2:  One very interesting aspect of Brust’s story is that all of the angels were essentially good until a conflict and deception arose among the angels.  On top of that, the three “evil” angels in the story ( evil according to many ‘modernised’ views…modern being several thousand years for Satan/Lucifer/Devil, and hundreds for Mephisto ) — Satan and Lucifer are the same entity,  and Mephistopheles is the name invented for the historical Johann Georg Faust (c. 1480–c. 1540), and in demonology, Mephistopheles was “one of the seven chief devils and the tempter of Faust”.  Nevertheless, in Brust’s story, Satan and Lucifer are “First-Borns”, and Mephistopheles is an archangel, not devils or demons. Note 3:  My Brust angels are a contradiction because they are made of fire.  Angels of fire, I think is a contradiction.

_________

An obscure character by the name of Belial. He is interpreted as a minion of the devil by some scholars, but that is wrong. It is ignorance. The name means, literally speaking, ‘one who cannot be yoked,’ and it is really every one of us who takes control of our own destiny while others blow in the wind. We may be punished for it, but we would never do it another way. We are all Belials.

Matthew PearlThe Last Bookaneer

“Mephistopheles: Solamen miseris socios habuisse doloris.

(It is a comfort to the wretched to have companions in misery)”.

Christopher Marlowe, Dr. Faustus

Abstract Light Streaks #311

Title:  Abstract Light Streaks #311.

Creation Date: 2 Oct 2016.

“ABSTRACT LIGHT STREAKS” SERIES.

Series Years:  2015 – 2016.

SERIES DESCRIPTION:

This is a collection of nighttime, time-exposure, light streak photography.  There is something about nighttime photography that I really like:  it allows me to make light fluid and I can make it twist and turn however I wish to get the effect I want.  There are some happy accidents too with this kind of photography. 

LOCATION:

All of these photographs were created in Penang, Malaysia.

Photography Genre:

  I would classify this as something I call, “Active (or Fluid-Light) Abstract Expressionism Photography.”
