Saint John's Cave of Light

The last series in the sequence inspired by Saint John is ‘Saint John’s Cave of Light’. In September 2018 and September 2019 Robert visited the island Patmos in Greece where the Cave of Saint John is situated. This series is inspired by the person Saint John, by his holy Cave and the (spiritual) journey of life. The artworks research how he lived in solitude in his Cave with his pupil Prochoros and could receive his visions from Heaven. Van de Graaf is particularly interested in Saint John’s connection with the spiritual world. The artworks are a modern translation on a theme which refer to the inspiration of the old masters as El Greco’s ‘The Vision of Saint John’ (1608-1614).
