The major life of The Christ are well known among Christians and have been depicted throughout art history and contemporary media.
The juxtaposition using gay pornography is meant to question the ideologies of homosexuality. The choice life events and fetishes are to juxtapose terminology and show possible sexual innuendos.
These seven works of art are mixed media paintings; made up using works from art history, gay pornography, photographs I have taken, and drawing and painting by myself. The exhibition is an alternative perspective of the major components of Christian Messiah, Jesus Christ. These events include: The Nativity, The Baptism, The Last Supper, The Kiss of Judas, The Flagellation, The Crucifixion, and The Resurrection & Ascension.
