Revenge of the Church


Oils on 40 x 50 cm stretched canvas (web store). Celebrates the Pope’s Revenge (a visual effect where the sun hits Berlin’s communist-built TV tower, or Fernsehturm, forming a cross of light), the role of the church in East German resistance, and the way in which religious institutions, cultures, and rituals can give us sanctioned frames for unsanctioned, biologically underpinned experiences that can in turn lead to changes in social norms on a vast scale (Sapolsky).
