Series Artist’s Statement:
“It wasn’t until after I designed the first 11 photographs in this series that I realized something very powerful about these images. There are big elements (relative to the other elements), and then small elements, and then tiny elements, and then, even smaller and smaller particles in the photographs, and all of the elements interconnect. Therefore, there is the placement of the bigger parts to create the sense of colour-field, fields, or partitions, and then there are all the particles that overlap and intermix with the larger parts in the photos.”

BELIAL T#7

———————

Fire Portraits Series

BELIAL, TRANSMOGRAFICATION #7

“Belial, Transmografication #7” is the newest of my “Fire Portraits Series” photographs, and Number 60 in the series.  I started this series in 2016, after reading Steven Brust’s great novel, “To Reign in Hell“, written in 1984:  DAMN…I can’t believe I didn’t know about this book way back then—Brust published this story the same year I started university.  I was reading many Sci-Fi and mythological stories at that time, mainly, Isaac Asimov, Frank Herbert, Robert Heinlein, Anne Inez McCaffrey, Larry Niven, and Ray Bradbury.   I’m just surprised I had no clue about an author who wrote a really original masterpiece about a war between the angels, and how Satan, Lucifer, Mephistopheles, Lilith, and others, became the “fallen angels”, kicked to the curb, and exiled into the abyss—Hell.

Anyway, Brust’s story was the influence for my Fire Portraits Series.

Belial, is one of the “First-Born” angels, and is a Regent of one of the corners of heaven.

From the illiaster came consciousness that resulted in the firstborn angels: Yaweh, Satan, Michael, Lucifer, Raphael, Leviathan and Belial.  (Source:  To Reign in Hell, Wikipedia).

Belial, half-mad and trapped in the form of a dragon, rules the Northern Regency.  (Source:  To Reign in Hell, Wikipedia).

Whenever I design a new Fire Portraits image, and it looks like a dragon, I will attribute it as a new transmografication of Belial—this is number seven.

Michael, Transmogrification #2, 22 December 2016

Title:  Michael, Transmogrification #2, 22 December 2016

Creation Date: 22 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.  Note 4:  Michael is a First-Born angel in the Brust story.  He is the greatest warrior and the protector of Yahweh and the Central Region.

● The more I see this work, the more evil it appears.  In fact, there is a definitive impression of Baphomet in this work—low-center sector.  For sure, a real “Masonic-Art” piece: So where are my Bilderberger buyers?

URBAN ABSTRACT EXPRESSIONISM by Nawfal Johnson.  Turning urban decay into abstract artwork. These interesting images are of things that most people ignore, but I do not.  These are from the “URBAN ABSTRACT DECAY WALLS”, PHOTOGRAPHY Collection, which appear to be Abstract Expressionism Paintings.  HOWEVER, because not all of the original photographs are decaying walls, I split off the URBAN ABSTRACT DECAY WALLS Collection into a subgroup series, the URBAN ABSTRACT EXPRESSIONISM Series.  The original photographs are from decaying walls, cracked concrete, desolate structures, and similar urban objects, but all found in Penang, Malaysia.

THE DEATH OF IVAN ILYICH, EDIT F, by Nawfal Johnson

THE DEATH OF IVAN ILYICH, EDIT F

“Can it be that I have not lived as one ought?” suddenly came into his head. “But how not so, when I’ve done everything as it should be done?”
― Leo Tolstoy, The Death of Ivan Ilyich

** When I created this Abstract Expressionism artwork, I thought of Tolstoy’s “The Death of Ivan Ilyich”, and the famous words of Ivan before his death, “Can it be that I have not lived as one ought?” Those words haunt me. And, if you look deeply into this artwork, you see two main containers. What if you spent your life in the small one, but really you could have lived a much more fulfilling life in the big container; however, you were afraid to make that journey to the bigger container because everything in the smaller container seemed right for your life, but things were missing – many things – you were just conforming to your environment. But, you had an idea that there may be something better and more fulfilling IF ONLY you would make that first step outside of the small container and then the next step, until you reached the bigger container, then you find out how much time you wasted in some comfort zone that was really a trap keeping you from moving forward to a better life. However, you suddenly discover that your life is coming to an end, and you realize that you never stepped outside your horrible comfort zone to explore new things – adventuring to the bigger container for example. That is why I feel comfortable about the title of this artwork and how it fits perfectly to make the story about the two containers in this artwork. **

Sometimes the mirrored image is an exact opposite-duplicate for both sides.  However, in some cases, one half is ALMOST a mirrored duplicate - with a few compositional differences. At times, my final artwork will resemble what seem mysterious forms and ominous images, even scary, or evil representations. Nevertheless, the viewer of my portfolio can decide for themselves what they see in these MIRRORED ABSTRACT PHOTOGRAPHY images.

This is my ‘Dark Period’.
These are dark times….
The sun is engulfed by gloom.
A gloom that is a bottomless pit.
Anyone who has never been to this place will never understand it.
Anyone who has been there, will surely sympathize, because they will understand the demons that haunt and the blackness that spreads with every cell division in your body.
And it feels like you are alone – no one gives a flying shit about you or the pain you face; they care neither about your physically caused pain, nor the mental struggles that keep you locked up like a prisoner in your own shell of a skin. 
You feel like shouting at the world, but your shouts come out with only silence because there are none who care…none who give a damn. 
Joy…What is Joy?  Joy has abandoned me – you too will understand this if you have lived through this hell:  Depression  is a bottomless pit of gloom, misery, a soul-energy-wasting demon that never sleeps.  Evil is busy – it never sleeps….it never sleeps.

~ Nawfal Johnson ~

People tell and advise you never to expose negative thoughts and feelings about yourself, for God sakes never do that, or possible clients and employers will see it and they will shun you like you are Typhoid-Mary!  Probably true.  Well, F’that!  I am just an expressive artist who is having the worst shit of a time in my entire life, at 49, and nothing I do seems to be working or helping. 

However, when did art not become an expressive way of expressing yourself?  When did poetry or writing NOT become a personal expression of life, your life as it is today when you write it? 

If I had a theme song in my life right now, that I could just put on repeat, it would be Pink Floyd’s “Comfortably Numb.”  But they would need to change it to “Un-Comfortably Numb” to fit better.
