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:
DIABOLICAE Imperatrix: “Diabolicae” is the Female Latin form of “Devilish“. “Imperatrix” is the Female form of the Latin word, “Imperator“, [which] derives from the stem of the verb imperare, meaning ‘to order, to command’.” (https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Imperator)

DIABOLICAE Imperatrix is thus, a Devilish Female Commander in Hell.

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:

“Asmodeus (/ˌæzməˈdiːəs/; Greek: Ασμοδαίος, Asmodaios) or Ashmedai (/ˈæʃmɪˌdaɪ/; Hebrew: אַשְמְדּאָי‎, ʾAšmədʾāy; see below for other variations) is a king of demons, or in Jewish and Islamic lore the king of the earthly spirits (shedim/jinn), mostly known from the deuterocanonical Book of Tobit, in which he is the primary antagonist. The demon is also mentioned in some Talmudic legends; for instance, in the story of the construction of the Temple of Solomon.” (Source: https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Asmodeus )

The Fire Portraits Series Concept:

This series consists of photography of fire shaped into Portrait-like imagery. The images represent the characters, the angels, in “To Reign in Hell”, written by Steven Brust. However, the series also includes fire portraits of demons, devils, and monsters.

—————
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 and they are not devils or demons. Note 3: My Brust angels are a contradiction because they are made of fire: I think that Angels of fire are a contradiction. Note 4: Belial in the Brust story is a Firstborn Angel and he is trapped in the form of a half-mad dragon. He spends much time in a sort of hibernation state. It is for this reason, that my fire portrait interpretations of BELIAL appear to look like dragon heads, or so I see dragon heads.

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).
