Artist statement

Rabies is a fatal but preventable viral disease. It can spread to people and pets if they are bitten or scratched by a rabid animal. rabies is mostly found in wild animals like bats, and foxes. However, most rabies deaths in people around the world are caused by dog bites.


After a rabies exposure, the rabies virus has to travel to the brain before it can cause symptoms. This time between exposure and appearance of symptoms is the incubation period.

Symptoms then progress to cerebral dysfunction, anxiety, confusion, and agitation. As the disease progresses, the person may experience delirium, abnormal behavior, hallucinations, hydrophobia (fear of water), and insomnia. The acute period of disease typically ends after 2 to 10 days. Once clinical signs of rabies appear, the disease is nearly always fatal, and treatment is typically supportive. Less than 20 cases of human survival from clinical rabies have been documented. Only a few survivors had no history of pre- or postexposure prophylaxis.


The Omen (after The Annunciation)
Artist Statement

The Omen triptych is a new take on the painting that addressed the subject of the Annunciation: The angel Gabriel's annunciation to virgin Mary of her pregnancy and becoming the mother of Jesus as described in the Gospel of Luke.

Despite the diverse artistic schools that addressed the subject of the Annunciation from the Renaissance, Baroque, and Rococo up to the Modern and Contemporary art, from Pero Della Francesca, Fra Angelico, Jan Van Eyck, Titian, El Greco, Botticelli, Master of Flémalle, to Da Vinci, Caravaggio, Raphael, and Maurice Denis, all the painters of this subject and its biblical concept maintained this iconic character, a feature that always branded these paintings.

This triptych, entitled The Omen, is an attempt to address one of the traditional subjects of painting in a new spirit.
