GOD IS DEAD
Spray paint, Acrylic on Canvas,
113 x 102cm framed with Tasmanian Oak
"God is Dead" is a powerful artwork that tackles important and timely issues of womanhood, religion, violence against women, and gun culture in the United States. Through the use of the Virgin Mary as a central figure, the artist highlights the hypocrisy of a religion that values motherhood but denies women the right to control their own bodies and reproductive choices.
The artist also addresses the devastating impact of the Supreme Court's ruling on Roe v. Wade and the way in which guns are given more rights than women in our society. By asking the question of whether a god can exist in a world that is so filled with violence and injustice, "God is Dead" challenges viewers to consider their own beliefs and the role of religion in our lives.
