A creative interpretation of St. John the Evangelist. St John is often
depicted writing the book of revelations, and with an eagle. He is said
to have dumped out a cup of poison which transformed into a snake and
slithered away into the wide, wicked world. St. John is sometimes
depicted wearing pink and is sometimes confused with Mary Magdalene.
I’ve fused the story of St. John the Evangelist and the recent pieces
I’ve been doing that have a Victorian/ early natural history museum
toner. My St. John is a young scientist taking notes next to his
taxidermy eagle. A snake skeleton is mounted on the wall behind him, and
at his feet a serpent slithers out of a brandy snifter.
Work in progress today.
