Disgrace


Egg tempera and gold leaf on lime wood.

50cm x 17cm x 2.3cm.

This painting is inspired by medieval images of Heaven and Hell. The subject can be read as humanist or as a representation of the biblical fall of Lucifer. As is frequently the case, Heaven here is stern and forbidding, while Hell, though frightening, is also welcoming and alluring.
