Revelation Chapter 9
A fifth angel with a key to the bottomless pit opens it and releases smoke that darkens the sun and sky. From the smoke comes “locusts” (Roman soldiers) with the power to stink like scorpions. Their king, bearing a sword, is identified as Abaddon (in Hebrew) and Apollyon (in Greek).
This is the ninth of a twenty-two piece collection called the Revelation Series. cult Founder Shawn McCraney has collected the details of each chapter and hand-etched them into 2’ x 2’ blocks of solid black acrylic.
Revelation Series Description
To artistically represent these findings, cult Founder (ha!) Shawn McCraney has collected the details of each chapter of Revelation, composed them into holistic depictions, and etched them into 2’ x 2’ solid blocks of black acrylic. The technique is as jarring, astounding and unique as the principles that they are grounded in. Each piece, when observed in order, helps paint the picture of the often opaque and obscure details that make up the Book of Revelation. While the intricacies are too dense for most believers, Shawn has put in the study and time to consolidate the most pertinent points into a 22-part story, one that is simple to recite yet robustly incomprehensible in its implications. The aphoristic power of this collection is indescribable, and has changed our lives significantly!
Shawn uses deconstructive techniques reminiscent of intaglio, employing the gritty imperfection of misused power tools, to draw depictions using layering of textural shifts. The effect is intentional and effective in drawing a viewer into the details, and requiring a presence in person, similar to the effect that we have on other individuals as believers – our love is demonstrated one on one, with sacrifice and with a visible hand.
