Entry Deadline: Jul. 31

Taking symbolic descriptions from the Bible, The Four Horseman of the Apocalypse: TWISTED, asks modern- day artists to share their imaginative renditions of this fear-provoking scene. Drawing upon their knowledge of religion, experiences, and artistic practice these artists offer a warped perspective. Come join us for a twisted, jumbled, screwed, manipulated, altered, looped, and distorted experience.
Remember that you can create one piece with all four horseman or four individual pieces. There are no restrictions. This is your creative interpretation that can be traditional, contemporary or illustrative or complete TWIST on what each horseman represents.
The four horsemen of the Apocalypse are described in just eight verses of the book of Revelation, which is the last book in the bible. The four horsemen appear when the Lamb (Jesus) opens the first four seals of a scroll with seven seals (which is described in Revelation chapter 6). As each of the first four seals are opened, a different colored horse and its rider, is seen by the apostle John as described in Rev 6:1-8.
First seal is opened: a white horse appears, its rider held a bow (conquest).
Second seal is opened: a red horse appears, its rider holds a sword (war)
Third seal is opened: a black horse appears, its rider holds a pair of scales (famine)
Fourth seal is opened: a pale horse appears, its rider is called Death
