Madonnas: Contemporary Re-Interpretations of the Image of Mary

"These interventions reflect on how the environment, economy and culture of former colonies have become heavily influenced and indoctrinated by new colonial powers, large trans-national corporations and the global market economy. As in most of my work, I appropriate past propaganda tactics and painting devices from the time of the conquest and colonization of the Americas in order to provide historical continuity and a link between the Colonial and the Neo-colonial narratives. Even though one might sense the implied negative effects, the narratives inhabited by baby angels, animals and other fictional characters, project a light of satire, charm and even optimism onto the ecological and socio-cultural issues in question."
