"Passion" is part of a Biblical series that reinterprets the importance and truth of religious and historical events that shape and define society. Via abstraction and fluidity of the images, the content of the basic beliefs in our culture is questioned and placed under a personal lens of perception and understanding. Through the juxtaposition of classical art themes and contemporary perspectives, the composition of the “art piece” is transformed. The sensuality and carnality of the works appeal to the basic human and animal instincts whetting the appetite of the viewer, while the religious themes constrict it, bringing to light the struggle of stern propriety and primal pleasures.
