Beliefs are part of our culture, history, and part of human nature. Whether we like it or not.
Growing up and being surrounded by Christianity made it a part of who I am.
In this very subjective visual interpretation, I wanted to show three elements that are essential for Christianity to exist: believer, church, and martyr. I wanted to look at it from a different, unusual angle, focusing on suffering, greed, and martyrdom.
Faith 1/3 - “Believer”
In “Believer” I wanted to focus on how the suffering of followers is necessary for religion to exist.
Faith 2/3 - “Pope”
In “Pope” I wanted to focus on greed and corruption that comes with power.
The inspiration for this artwork was born from observation and reflection on the phenomenon of power; studying the biographies of the "bad popes" gave me a lot of material for work, and it surprised me in such a way that I decided to explore how institutionalism can dehumanize man and noble ideas in a terrible way. This is one of my most important artworks.
Faith 3/3 - “Martyr”
In “Martyr” I wanted to focus on how the death of the messiah was turned into a symbol.
