I have to admit that I find it hard to judge one way or another about this art. Mainly because as I view work like this, I can’t understand where the artist is coming from. In this particular case, the artist was talking about the Gospels and how the paintings were meant to portray the themes of the books. Yet, maybe it is just my imagination that is the problem, but I can’t see the themes of the Gospels in the paintings.
