Beginning of the End: the
Dutch-born painter Annalies Clarke's exhibition "Revelation: The
Seven Sisters" is in St John's, Knoyle Road, Brighton, and open on
4, 5, 11, 12, 18, 19, 25, and 26 May. Her large painting
(above) The Masked Ball brings together her
personifications of the Seven Churches of Revelation 1-3, in a
composition that reflects their relative locations in Asia Minor.
Her seven paintings of the figures separately include (in
slideshow) Pergamon (where Satan's throne is);
Sardis (dead, but reputed to be alive); and
Laodicea (neither hot nor cold). The artist plans to
tackle all of Revelation.
