Lucifer; The Light Carrier
When I was sharing a studio with a number of other illustrators some years ago we decided to produce a self promotional calendar.
I did this painting in response to the simple brief "Light" that we set for ourselves.
I found a print of it in my studio clear-out and enhanced the light effect in photoshop....the original was a bit lacklustre.
It's intriguing to me how Lucifer, the light carrier came to be one of the names associated with the Devil.
I was playing about a bit with preconceptions about light and dark, good and evil and even male and female in the image of an angel.
