After Pedro Roldán "Mater dolorosa"
2018 - As a Canadian living in Saudi Arabia I wanted to explore the intersection of East and West. Islam and Christianity share the same religious history until after Christ. This series is based on a sculpture ‘our mother of sorrows’ by Roldán and Islamic geometric patterns and ornaments. The paintings also contrast Islamic aniconism (not being allowed to figuratively represent) and Christian realism.
