Gods of Suburbia

GODS OF SUBURBIA (2014) is a visual analysis of religious faith within the context of the modern forces of technology, science, and secularism. Deities, drawn from polytheistic to Abrahamic tradition are humanized, mortalized and thrust into modernity. The series plays with narrative and religious iconography in order to communicate how organized belief has become twisted within a global framework driven by consumerism and greed. The project challenges the viewer – religious or secular – to embark on a journey of self-reflection as they contemplate the relevance of dogmata in modernity. The series has been exhibited internationally at museums, festivals and galleries. The Last Supper remains most popular in Italy.
