Pieta, 2013

173 x 190 x 97 cm

The Pieta is another piece in the eversion series that examines the relationship between Maria and Jesus. A copy of a copy, it’s been replicated from a souvenir object by enlargement in 3D imaging. The piece deals with an oedipal relationship, as well as a loss of a child. The juxtapositions between the positive forms and concave surfaces, especially the inverted head of Jesus heightens the absence of the body adding to the visceral experience. This is a work in progress.
