《Gabriel》is No.2 of the Real Big City series

《Gabriel》
 

There’s a pure spirit that dwells in the twilight above dark towers.

 

The heavenly court’s eunuch is waiting for the masters call.

 

No eyes can be offended by bitchy street lights twinkling.

 

The buzzing cacophony oozing up from the guts of the real big city don’t reach its hearing.

 

Just like spectral mermaids its androgyne being is floating in a eternal now.

 

Be concealed for another short aeon sweet Gabriel!

 

The day of your revelation will be Jerusalem’s final judgement.

 
 

Words From The Artist:

“There’s a combination of subjects and images not only to be find in science fiction literature and dark romantic poetry of the 19th century but also in apocrypha of the bible that inspired me. One of them is the idea of humans as a designed luxury product for particular requirements of high class society. ”

 

About Gabriel:

“Gabriel in the bible is one of the chiefs of God’s divine army. It’s the messenger of prophetic revelations and warnings. Western religious myths are depicting angels as spirits with no gender. ”

 

《加百利》是真正的大城市系列的第二幅
 
《加百利》
 
 
有一种纯粹的精神,存在于黑暗塔顶的暮光之中。

神圣天井的宦官正等待着,主的召唤。

没人会触怒于闪烁着的,恶毒的街灯。

也没人听见

嗡嗡作响的嘈杂声,从真正大城市的内脏里,

渗透,慢慢流出来。

就像幽灵般雌雄同体的美人鱼

漂浮在不朽的现在。

被隐藏了又一个短暂的世代

亲爱的加百利!

你苏醒的那一天,

将会是耶路撒冷,最后的审判日。

 
 

来自作者的话:

“作品中包含的主题和形象,来自于19世纪的科幻著作和黑暗的浪漫主义诗歌。另外,圣经的新约外传也启发了我。其中之一就是关于“人类是为了高等社会而设计出来的奢华产品”的思想。”

 

关于加百利:

“加百利在圣经里是上帝神圣军队的首领之一,是传递先知的启示和警告的使者。西方宗教神话里描绘的天使神灵,是没有性别之分的。 ”
