The line between Holiness and Grotesque is really very thin.

My love for religious iconography began long time ago. The fact that always fascinated me is that for their naivety they become unconsciously pathetic.

I never understood why I always end up dazing at these religious icons like I fall in a mystic trance.  It’ s a sort of an epiphany during which I’m waiting for some unknown revelation. It’s almost a mistery to me that while they should represent something holy and high, aesthetically they’re quite grotesque and kitsch.
