These images are an expression of the struggle to reconcile the dualistic nature of religion; its altruistic foundations and its malevolent complicities so apparent within our modern perspective.  This art depicts the confusion inherent in trying to navigate these two opposing faces to find a personal religious truth.  Bringing together appropriated content from divergent sources, I have created disorienting images of caricatured rhetoric showing the tortured folly of that quest.

There is an interesting relationship between the cartoon style characters from comic books and the figures from religious stories I was taught as a child.  By deconstructing the original narrative context of these images and segments of texts, the veracity initially ascribed to them is dissolved allowing for a personal investigation into what we perceive to be ‘truth’ and how hortatory rhetoric can construct artifice within our minds.
