A House and Property Filled with Symbols of Prophecy
Prophet Isaiah Robertson (b. 1947)
Second Coming House
Art Type or Medium: Environment/Installation
Status: active, but somewhat distressed
Secular or Religious: Religious
At age twenty-four, Isaiah Robertson emigrated from Jamaica to Canada where he worked primarily in the construction trades. He moved from the Toronto area to Niagara Falls, NY in 2004. The nearby Mt. Erie Baptist Church– where he is a parishioner– hired him for a simple interior renovation, but through divine intervention, the project became his first prophecy.
Begun after the church interior was completed in 2006, the elaborate and specific symbolism that covers his house and property represents his second prophecy of the Second Coming.
