FAITH DROP

About this artwork

From the series ‘New Democratic Pictures’, ‘Faith Drop’ is among the first works in which the artists depict themselves naked. They are shown devoutly on their knees, held aloft on the open palms of giant arms. Falling from the sky are oval-shaped pieces of ecclesiastical architecture, such as rose windows. These bear symbols which reflect many of the world’s religions. The soft pinks and warm yellows lend the picture an otherworldly quality.
