All paintings in this post are available from the TRIALS OF THE SAINTS section of our shop.
The "Medical Trials of the Saints" series of mixed media/oil paintings takes religious memes from classical art history and re-imagines them in a diseased, posthuman context. In a truly metamodern way, these images are meant to be simultaneously reverent and horrific, to both compel and repel, and in so doing to reflect the complexity of our relationships with our environments, our faiths, and ourselves. Each painting represents not only hours of indirect Old Master-inspired painting, but also hours of research into the syncretic/memetic history of the saints and deities represented.
Thanks for supporting the arts by supporting artists. :)
