Dana Ellyn - Jesus Does His Nails
This is a piece done for International Blasphemy Day, which is a movement to dismantle the wall which exists between religion and criticism. It's aim is to open up all religious beliefs to the level of free inquiry, discussion, and criticism to which all other areas of academic interest are subjected. Dana. grew up with no concept of religion and was first introduced to the concept in college during her art history classes where the gods and goddesses of mythology were presented as fiction, whereas Christian themes were presented as history. Her art is both provocative and to some offensive, which is something I like a great deal and will eventually strive to incorporate into my own art as an Atheist.
