Sanctum of YouTube (2020) painting

Sanctum of YouTube

Digital Paradise

This painting is part of the sub-series of paintings, which are part of the #Blessed exhibition.
These paintings focus on the connection between classical religious imagery and modern day idols. They tell the story of how in our times celebrities are viewed, and how this compares to worship.In essence, the narrative is about the human urge to seek something higher then one’s self. Whether that comes in the shop of a saint or a celebrity, it seems we as a species have this deeper need to seek these idols.
The paintings combine digital art with classic painting, they reflect on art history while staying very grounded in contemporary times.
