This series of etchings was inspired by Durer’s famous woodcut piece “The Revelation of St. John (Apocalypse)”, first appeared in 1498. In his prints, God and his angels are a type of transcendence infusing all beings with the principles of monotheism. Transcendence appears like a single beacon on top of a hierarchy. In such a belief system, everything has its value set by referring to the top beacon, which creates light and shadow, good and bad etc. However, in today’s more secular and scientific world, such divinity or judgement seems less applicable. I therefore wanted to create a more ambiguous image of how an apocalypse might be, and question who is suffering in the context of climate change existentialism, and lead to a mythological vision of our relationship with nature over the remaining course of the 21st century. 

Three etchings from the series are in V&A collection.
