Influences for this Series:

The novel, “To Reign in Hell”, by Steven Brust.

Representative Expression:

“The images that emerge from my Smoke-Art and Fire-Art photographs, through my design techniques, tend to be malevolent-looking portraits of what I interpret as Fallen Angels, Demons, and Dangerous Creatures. It isn’t that I know immediately what portrait will reveal itself to me as I work, but usually, a face of some creature eventually shows itself. Because of the abstract and interpretive nature of these art pieces, I realize that other viewers may see different content within, other creatures perhaps, and still, some may not fully realize any such creatures in the art photographs.”

What is “Mastema”?

The “Mastema” is from ancient non-Biblical texts, such as the Book of Jubilees. It refers to Satan.

The name Mastema is probable derived from the Hebrew, “Mastim”, the Hiphil participle of “Satam”, and it means ‘one who is adverse’ or ‘inimical.’ The word is equivalent to Satan (adversary). The term is sometimes used in the plural, which indicates that there was a class of ‘the Mastema’ as well as one prince, Mastema. This is similar to the chief Satan and his class of Satans (see 1 Enoch 40:7).

DEMON and FLOWERS, Number 1, Edit C by Nawfal Johnson

Title: DEMON and FLOWERS, Number 1, Edit C. Creation Date: 6 September 2014. Collection: MIRRORED ABSTRACT PHOTOGRAPHY Collection Years: 2010 to Present (On-Going). Copyright 2014 Nawfal Johnson. All Rights Reserved. Penang, Malaysia. WEB: https://smokephotographist.wordpress.com  "MIRRORED ABSTRACT PHOTOGRAPHY" is a collection of colour and Black & White, abstract images that are designed with a mirrored effect.  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.

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.
