Toxic Angel

a holy temple now defaced and painted over with graffiti as the former guardian, now in a gasmask to ward off corruption, looks on

I deliberately inverted the peaceful Holy Place from earlier in 2013 for my end-of-2013 solo show God From the Machine. The solo show focused on mechanization and the sometimes sinister mating of the machine-world with the natural world, so letting this discord and unnatural atmosphere seep over Holy Place seemed like an effective way to evoke that. …it kind of hurt to do though!

Holy Place

A marble statue holds a marble dove in a peaceful abandoned temple.

Made this at the very beginning of 2013 for a contest. I didn’t win the contest but as sometimes happens, making and showing this piece led to a lot of other opportunities. I did an inversion of it called “Toxic Angel” for my December 2013 solo show. I’ll update with that piece another day!

Now a piece in my Society6 shop.
