I’ve been working on an illustration project about the creation of the world.
I started at Genesis one verse one, and made an illustration wherever I could.
Even though the project is not finished yet, I’d like to share it here one by one, combined with a quote that might make you think more or differently about the verse.
I hope you enjoy :)
In the beginning
and the earth.
“Once earth and sky were passionately one,
yet nothing had form;
everything was virtual.
For the world and its forms and its extension
to come into existence,
earth and sky had to be
torn apart and separated.
Love aims to close all distance.
Yet if separation and space were annihilated
neither loved one nor lover would exist.
Between space and love there is the first opposition
– that opposition which is contained as energy
within the original act of creation.”
Quote from John Berger in the book ‘And Our Faces, My Heart, Brief as Photos’.
