Blood Angel

Blood Angel is a video tableau that utilizes various poetic mythologies utilizing blood and water, including the Biblical mythology of the Revelation, interpreted as poetic trope rather than prophecy. The “angel” remains resolute while blood and ashes fall. The sanguine motif is influenced by the works of the Vienna Actionists, Andres Serrano, Paul McCarthy and art house films such as Lars von Trier’s Antichrist and Werner Herzog’s Nosferatu.

Example: Revelation 5. Seven trumpets are sounded - First Trumpet: Hail and fire, mingled with blood, are thrown to the earth burning up a third of the trees and green grass. (8:6-7) Revelation 16 Seven bowls are poured onto Earth: Second Bowl: The sea turns to blood and everything within it dies. (16:3) Third Bowl: The third angel poured out his bowl into the rivers and the springs of water, and they became blood. (16:4-7)
