We have just spent a few hours in the Guggenheim museum. One of the current exhibitions is the work of Niki de Saint Phalle. She apparently grew up in a convent school. I am assuming that influenced a couple of her pieces.
What to do with yourself when you’re away from church and off on holiday? Visit a cathedral of course! For the heady price of €1 at Ibiza Cathedral you can see the nice things they stash out the back.
The most interesting thing was a set of paintings showing some interesting medieval folk law intertwined with biblical imagery to produce an epic 70’s album cover!
The main protagonist.
I wonder what this filthy heretic has done or said? Who has he offended?
I love the way in which real people are often painted into ancient scenes. I wonder who this guy was and who he offended.
Now I want to go and listen to some 70’s vinyl. Perhaps some Saxon or some Priest!
I came across this wonderful image on Richard Littledale’s blog. It is a wonderful reimagining of church art in a contemporary way. I love the guy in a hoodie praying!
