About my artwork
A confrontation of sacral themes is a principal element in a series of transformed „windows“ by American Microsoft. Artist chose the form of representation that is an attribute of current society – visuality of computer programmes that we see and use on the screens of our PC`s every day. Furthermore he applied them to the specific stories in the New Testament using their metaphorical resemblance. “Windows”, notifying the process of various operations performed in the most wide-spread user interface – Windows, suddenly do not inform us about CD burning process but about Raising of Lazarus; instead of error notification we learn that Peter renounced Christ or in lieu of file re-formating there is blood transforming to wine in our computer. Everything is rendered in the medium of painting consistently copying graphical visual of computer environment.
