“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.” Some of the characters in the story are represented by more than one image as the elemental fire is ever changing, and I see my subjects in different forms.
Note 2: Forneus is not mentioned in the Brust story, but imagine that he is one of the Fallen Angels. He is in the form of a great sea monster.
Note 3: “In demonology, Forneus is a Great Marquis of Hell, and has twenty-nine legions of demons under his rule. He teaches Rhetoric and languages, gives men a good name, and makes them be loved by their friends and foes. He is depicted as a great sea monster. He causes men to have a good name and to have the knowledge and understanding of tongues. He makes one beloved by his foes as well as of his friends. He is partly of the Order of Thrones, and partly of that of Angels. His name seems to come from Latin “fornus” (oven). ” [Source: https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Forneus ]
