The GOSPEL ON BROWN BAGS

each 24¾x21”; mixed media on brown paper bags

 

In this cycle, the Gospel is presented in altogether ten pieces. They are given a title and a subtitle each, the latter referring to the Bush presidency. The choice of brown paper bags as surface evokes the cheapness, the ‘disposability’ of events, stories, narratives and spin.

juxtaposed in the titles of each piece scenes from the gospel with political catchwords of the early 2000s.
