“When the likeness of Christ is removed and replaced with some abstract thing, the artist has removed the concrete visual reminder that God so loved us he humbly manifested as man for our salvation. Gone is an entire half of His duel nature. Christ was fully human and fully divine. Not fully 24-karat gold sphere and fully divine.
“Haute Sphere” is an epic fail, except in one respect: by rendering the birth of Our Lord in a manner so arcane and indistinguishable, the artist has given powerful testimony to the truth that one cannot successfully express artistically what one does not know or reasonably understand.”
