Description

Lee was looking for a British publisher for her book "The Birthgrave," but was denied at every House she went. Built to commemorate those lost in the War with Heaven it also serves as the headquarters for Dis’ military.

While this painting represents a semi-intelligent individual, there must be countless Abyssals that are mere animals. And I also wanted to let the paint, itself, flow a little more freely to enhance the sense of dynamism this character has always had in my mind. She then wrote to American publisher DAW, known for it's fantasy and horror selections, who immediately accepted her manuscript and published the book in 1975. And so in this art, in the horror and cruelty and disregard of the sacred human soul, there is still beauty and striving. Barlowe masterfully takes points from not only Dante's works but also that of other cultures and religions both commonplace and obscure, whilst submerging them in that hellish broth of his own creation.Blake was one of the most interesting artists and poets of his day and I would be remiss in not mentioning that he, too, fell under the spell of John Milton’s Paradise Lost, the single greatest influence on my Hell work. I decided to transform them into the indigenous peoples of Hell, there long before the demons Fell and the Inferno was populated by the damned. These are works reminiscent of painter John Martin, whose own vistas of Hell hang in the world's finest museums. Consider that it is much more fascinating from an artist's point of view to explore the dark rather than the light, even though we depend on the light to do our work! The devil is in the details and it took quite some time to work out all of the motifs from a design standpoint.

It represents another small step towards understanding that brilliant program but is, by no means, more than an exercise. Sharing the world of Hell, the demons and Abyssals co-exist in an uneasy relationship with both sides preying upon each other.Sargatanas Descending – (from Barlowe’s Inferno – acrylic on ragboard) – Like all Demons Major, Sargatanas is a metamorphic being. Only the thickest-built archiorganic structures can withstand the Demolishers which is why each is commanded by a powerful Demon Minor wise in the invocations necessary to further weaken them.
