Michael Page "Return of the Nephilim"
40 x 48, oil on wood panel
In "Return of Nephilim' Michael Page comtemplates our planet and ecosystem as not yet seen before in our current times. This latest body of work reflects on global transformation and ecological upheaval with the aftermath of what has become and is to come. These new works illustrate how all living things on this earth are intertwined and are as one; with one needing the other in every step of life.
The Nephilim were an antediluvian race (pre-flood) race which are referred to in the Bible as giants. They were reportedly the children born from the "daughters of men'', and the "Sons of God''. It is most important to note that they are mentioned almost simultaneous to God's statement that He would destroy the earth by flood, and it seems from this association that their affect upon mankind was one of the primary justifications that brought the destruction.
Michael Page works full time as an artist and lives in San Francisco, California. He has shown throughout Europe and the U.S and was recently in Volume 12 of High Fructose Magazine and the current issue of DPI, an international art magazine from Asia. Michael regurgitates what is thrown at him daily by poking mud with brushes onto wood.
