Out of the Abyss by Jonathan Monaghan

20 Aug

This is an excerpt, not the full work.

Out of the Abyss combines imagery from modern consumerism with symbols and narratives associated with the Apocalypse. Visually extravagant, the work re-imagines elements such as the seven-eyed lamb and the four horsemen as terrifying beasts of the present day, adorned with security cameras, riot gear, and consumer electronics. The work suggests an unsustainable and fraught relationship between technology and materialism, and the natural world.
