Featuring the celebrated Tucson artist Daniel Martin Diaz, Paradise Lost is Diaz’s visual interpretation inspired by John Milton’s epic poem of the same name. This new series is comprised of ten drawings that allegorically illustrate the “Fall of Man” and “War in Heaven” in contemporary times. Diaz derives his “Old World” style and mystical imagery from a variety of sources, including Byzantine iconography, retablos, ex votos, the Illuminati, ephemera, alchemy, scientific diagrams, and 16th century anatomical engravings.
