Would Jesus Do?
A series of digitally manipulated photographs
In this series I have taken images of Corporate American signs that are being used to make political and often religious statements ("God Bless America","Pray for Our Country"etc) about the post September 11th situation.
I have digitally removed those original statements and have replaced them with quotes from the scriptures. The 3 pieces are each named after their scriptural location:
Ezekiel 28.16, Luke 6.29, Matthew 5.9.
The work deals with a number of issues. These include the intersection of Religion, Politics and Corporate America as well as the debate about the war in Afghanistan and the utilization and representations of religious doctrines be they the Muslim or Christian, particularly at this sensitive time.
