ELOHIM THE APOCALYPTIC TIME MACHINE
< http://exhibitsnhkox.homestead.com/ElohimTime1.html >
Elohim is the Hebrew word we translate as “God,” and “apocalypse” is the New Testament word for revelation. The concept of “Elohim The Apocalyptic Time Machine,” is very simple and at the same time quite complex. Elohim, God, exists in a limitless eternity, outside of our realm of measured time. According to Scripture he knows and sees the end from the beginning. This is what makes prophecy possible. He sees what has happened before we experience it. To him it has already taken place. All past, present and future are recorded in the eternal archives of the omniscient Elohim. At times he chooses to allow certain people to glimpse the future. This is a prophetic revelation, an apocalypse of things to come, an actual view of God’s memory. Since he holds all knowledge of past, present and future, Elohim is a virtual time capsule, a time machine: Elohim the Apocalyptic Time Machine.
Kox and Thompson feel that their paintings have been inspired and guided by the hand of Elohim, the Master of time and space, to allow others to see beyond the confines of the moment into the Eye of the Eternal.
The artists would like to acknowledge, and thank, Jeremy J. Kox and David Damkoehler for their assistance and collaboration on this installation.
