Abstract

Research plays an integral role in the conceptual development of this series of graphite drawings establishing an alternative dialogue with westernized religion. Source material ranges from theoretical and fictional texts to popular culture and art history. More specifically, this series recasts the image of Christ in contemporary culture; a new narrative developed by the artist collides with the biblical protagonist. This provocation subverts the viewer’s expectations surrounding more traditional and historical representations. Allowing the artist’s findings and inferences to congeal in the form of visual art sparks a dialogue between artist and spectator.
