I have always been fascinated with people who believe they are currently living in the end times. I myself have mixed opinions of the subject. Intellectually, I find the belief irrational and dangerous. Since John's revelation, people of all times have believed they were living in the end times. And with that belief comes great irresponsibility when it comes to protecting the environment. However, I have found that most of these believers are not religious-right ideologues, but are normal good people. And despite the fact that I am a skeptical agnostic, it surely seems humanity's prospects for the near future is pretty bleak. It certainly seems like the signs of Armageddon are there.
For this body of work I wanted to create fictional portraits that depicted people who have just realized that the rapture have occurred and they have been left behind.
