Eulogy of Age

Our contemporary lack of religious adherence is leading to self-idolism; replacing the worship of a god with the worship of the self. This narcissism elevates the self to exist on a god-like level, replacing our traditional understandings of worship with rituals of self-idolism. Through a postmodern appropriation of Christian iconography using Michelangelo's Pietà, my digital painting draws on traditional art to explore contemporary practices in a modern medium. These are hand drawn self-portraits influenced by the hyper-realism of Jen Mann, Kemi Mai and Erik Jones.


ARTEXPRESS is a joint venture of the NSW Department of Education and the Board of Studies Teaching and Educational Standards NSW, hosted by Hazelhurst Regional Gallery & Arts Centre.
