The Pious, 2020
Acrylic, latex, spray paint, colored pencil on wood.
Beware false idols. Commentary on the relevance and contemporary worship of social media.
This project began in November 2019. Like most pieces that leave the studio, this work willed itself to the forefront of my subconscious. Sometimes the images present in a cryptic fashion and sometimes they're vivid and demanding. However confronted with these visions, I'm always humbled by giving them life.
The Pious was conceived before I became familiar with Plato's "Euthyphro". After studying the dialogue I could understand how it related to the overarching theme behind the art. This piece is named in honor of that literary work.
