“Hell is empty, and all the devils are here…”
The Tempest-William Shakespeare
“Infernal-The Denouement” chronicles Dante’s nine circles through the prism of T.S Eliots Wasteland, against the Brutalist urban decay of the artists Liverpool, Catholic upbringing.
Raw, visceral and elegiac, this final series represents Van Gough’s darkly cathartic reveries as revelation, created during a tumultuous year of hell’s–that included the pandemic, a brush with mortality and the death of the artists father.
“Infernal…”, closes the arc on a trilogy of works, that began with “Purgatorium” (2014) and “Paradiso’s Fall” (2019) and was on show at the Dark Art Emporium August 14th 2021.
