VISIONARY REVUE


MOUNT SALVAT
MOUNT SALVAT (1994)
(Mount Salvat)



      The final theme to emerge in Johfra’s ‘Symphonie Fantastique’ is the distant celestial city. At times, this appears as the lost island of Atlantis (1990) or Mount Salvat (1994). Most beautifully, in Geological Wandering (1990), it appears as a distant heavenly Jerusalem bathed with a glowing golden light. In the foreground, almost too small to be seen, stands the artist himself with palette in hand.

GEOLOGICAL WANDERING
GEOLOGICAL WANDERING (1990)
(Geologische wandeling)

      Incredibly, the artist’s fascination with the elements has not abadoned him. His Atlantis is a glowing city in the distant waters; Mount Salvat arises among the stones and the earth; the golden city of the Geological Wandering appears among the air and clouds; and a similar work entitled The Two Fires offfers a distant city surmounted by a fiery tower. In each of the four elements lies a forgotten paradise.
