PORTRAIT OF THE CARDINAL
Photo portrait of a man with a newspaper. He looks angry. he raised his right hand to bless the audience. From the left side of the image are written names of cities that suffered from terrorist attacks during the last year.
In this series I used the traditional subjects of Flemish portraits, Such as : portraits of Royal family, religious paintings, portraits of rich citizens or donator, portrait of Cardinal and self portrait of artist. In every image, there is an illusion, which helps the viewer to see an analogy with modern problems. the project discussed actual issues for the modern man: changing social values, attitude of people to religion, politics, morality etc. In every image there is a fragment with the mirror, it was done for the viewer , who can see himself in every portrait.
The protrait tells the story about human values. Portrait symbolizes the story about a selfish angry Cardinal. This story is not abouth the man, it's abouth fear of a Nation. Abouth fake pray and compassion which we saw in Mass Media and social networks after attacks.
Pieces which cut from the mirror created for the viewer , who could see himself in each work.
