Supporting Education Through Art… August 26, 2015

Behold the Joy of Jesus (by Lindena Robb, Sydney, Australia)

The piece is screaming with social commentary about Christ, exploring the relationship between multiculturalism and life as performance. What starts out as contemplation soon becomes corrupted into a carnival of exaggerated jubilation, leaving only a sense of nihilism and the inevitability of a new reality. As shimmering forms become reconfigured through emergent and academic practice, the viewer is left with an insight into their relationship with Christ.

And my mom thought that art degree would go to waste.
