“Fire Portraits” Series.
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, three “so-called evil” angels in the story, Satan, Lucifer, and Beelzebub are three different beings. However, in religious references, these three names are used in reference to the devil. 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. Note 4: In the Brust story, Belial is portrayed as a dragon. “Belial (also known as Beliar) is a term occurring in the Hebrew Bible which later became personified as the devil in Jewish and Christian texts.”
