The Acrobats of the Apocalypse - Oil on canvas, 40x30"



Four ghosts loom around a nightscape of the Nevada desert in an image that depicts both personal and philosophical ideas.

The Acrobats named Death, Battle, Conquest and Judgement, counter-clockwise from the right, draw a cycle of human civilization counting backwards towards our most primitive stages. The stormy sky on which they float indicates a coming change, thus signaling a prophecy and a historical reflection.

The Eye of God indifferently manifesting over a single, humble tent in the middle of the nightscape: the setting of world-changing events seems insignificant from a cosmic point of view.
The tent also stands for the Earth, in a synecdoche where the Nevada desert and its night sky symbolize the rest of the universe.
