Inferno Terra Paradiso S2T2

Inferno Terra Paradiso Series 2 Triptych 2 2007 50x80 cm

This series moves on from the Inferno Terra Paradiso series 1, inspired by Dante's Divine Comedy, which unearthed three states of mind. It unifies the conflicts and reconciles the three states that are ever present within humanity into a state of mind that incorporates the energies of Heaven, Earth and, Hell simultaneously. The vision ascends from the fiery, unstable forces of the underworld, through the reassuring, solid contrasts of the earth, to an intense blue, suggestive of the spiritual energy of the wider universe.
