PARADISE LOST is a collection inspired and named after John Milton' s poem based on the biblical figures of Adam and Eve, their presence in the Garden of Eden and the consequences of their inobedience to their Creator's single command: to not eat the fruit that comes out of one particular tree. Satan, the fallen angel, succeeds in corrupting God's perfect creations, aiming to prove their imperfection. Eve is the first to allow herself to succumb to temptation. Adam, fully acknowledging the gravity of the situation, follows, not wanting Eve to suffer the possible consequences alone.
This collection is a series of paintings that touches on todays Adam and Eve. The individual desires and struggles of each man or woman to go through their own rollercoaster of life. The struggle of the genuine self and its desires often being restrained and imprisoned by a thousand voices called society.
