Woking, The Lightbox, The Ingram Collection: Where’s God Now? 18 July – 27 September 2015
The artist comments ‘Around the time New Messiah was created I had been studying religious art, looking at the symbolism of colour, body language and light, which can be found within Icons of the Orthodox church. The icons were used to teach through a visual language which is universal; they went beyond words, and could do more than look aesthetically pleasing. This led me to attempt a similar level of symbolism within my own images, and so I created a series of Icon styled images that included New Messiah. I decided to focus this image on computer icons, playing on the concept of religious icons and imagery, as to make a statement on the importance that technology has in modern day society’.
