Nephilim

Andrew M. Melms's avatar Andrew M. Melms

I first started sketching out ideas for this piece about 5 years ago borrowing elements from 1920's era nouveau poster art. What this piece means to me & the emotional/intellectual reaction that I wish to illicit from the viewer has changed over the time it has taken to bring Nephilim to it's current form. Recent cultural developments have provoked feelings & thoughts that weren't originally considered during the earlier stages of it's construction. All this aside, I choose to be intentionally opaque about the meaning of my art. The story that unfolds in the imagination of the viewer shouldn't be limited or contaminated by what I have to say about it.
