PIETA 2018
PIETA 2018

“Pieta 2018” (Oil and Acrylic on canvas,183 x 122cm) was triggered by the unprecedented amount of murders that currently have occurred in London this year half of which are of young men and girls aged 30 years and under and are almost certainly gang members or the victims of gang culture.

Taking reference from the Renaissance religious paintings and the incomparable Michelangelo’s Pieta’s, Pieta 2018 shows a mother mourning the senseless death of her son. She is dressed in a vibrant green dress while her son lies dead in her arms and to reinforce this narrative I have used the “dead colours” technique. Although this work takes its reference from the past it represents a very modern problem.

With this painting comes a Murder Map which lists the names of those who have been murdered in London this year and with those under 30 years of age marked in red to help put this painting in context.

A series of paintings and drawing depicting the human form confined within the area of the canvas and asks whether we are put in boxes by others or do we confine ourselves. Spatial awareness is another way of saying we are aware of our place in the world but I wonder if we actually do have the freedom of knowing where and who we are or do we just think we do.
