Dante's Inferno has a long tradition in the visual arts. I have made two series based on this poem. The present one began with images of demons and creatures one might find in a 'traditional' Hell. But as the series progressed it became more politicized and present day war imagery crept in. This, I found to be in keeping with the spirit of the Inferno which was a very damning tirade against Many of Dante's contemporaries.
