If you've been following me for a while you'll know I like the band Ghost. I've recently been painting large surreal pieces based off my own interpretations of songs on their most recent album - Impera.
Hunters Moon. An oil painting. The center of the painting features an image of a large red blood moon. Behind it there appears to be a fiery light echoing a solar flare. In front of the Blood moon, we see the skull of a stag. Beneath the stag skull and moon, there is a shining white orb. Around the borders there are images of corrupt thorn like shapes.]
Hints of Kaisarion
At the bottom of the painting I hint at visuals of a dystopian corrupt city. This links to one of the first songs on the Impera album Kaisarion.
“stench of heaven”
Borrowing still from Kaisarion, the city is emitting a cloud of pollution all over the panting - The lyrics “stench of heaven” are echoed though out the album and “too close to forever” means that history is repeating itself and is going too far too fast.
