History has certainly shown that any excuse will do when it comes to human’s rioting. So long as that image of Christ is on a cross and doing the penance for the riot, I dare say the riots will continue…really fucked up if you ask me.
Brilliant and thought provoking, Loui x
i really don’t go for political statements (even though i have gone against my own policy here and fear doing so really) but to see young women put into prison for expressing an opinion for so long with the fear of serving years more incarceration for such a meager reason is appalling to my sense and sensibility, i am sure that christ himself would disapprove of the extreme measures employed in this mountain made from a mole hill scenario, perhaps a modest fine would have been in order if anything at all….this of course is just my own opinion…..thank you Lisa :) your a friend i adore.

not sure what is this connected to – which probably means that I did not watch or hear the ‘news’ long enough to be out of the loop – does that make a political statement? not sure the Image of Christ has been used and or misused for so many purposes, but I would quite trust your ‘purposes’ Loui :)
its just this story going on right now, a world news thing that i happen to hear on the radio where some girls (who have formed a punk band called ‘Pussy Riot’) expressed a blasphemous prayer (that lasted all of a few minutes) in a church in Russia calling for the virgin mary to be a feminist, they posted this on line after which the authorities arrested them and they have languished in prison now for five months or so and the authorities are recommending three years prison terms and Putin himself will get the final say on their fate……to me it all just seems quite bizarre and freakish really….perhaps a new jail out to be constructed for people expressing themselves…..as i said earlier i am not into political opinion in my art really but just now and then i guess i am moved…….after all Jesus expressed a different opinion to the one going so was crucified for it, i guess it is these young girls time to also pay for their perceived sins….thank you anna
Nice speak Loui, It certainly has a locked away and forgotten about feel to it.. !very touching.. Bless you and those who care .. x
LOL, what a difference a slogan tee makes!
one needs to tread carefully when using the image of jesus…personally, i feel the “Riot” bit is superfluos ;)
Lol !! xo
Love it Loui….We all have to Riot in our own individual way…I may end up like this for some of my political aomments
Good. His mother – I’m tempted to call her “the other Madonna” – would approve, I’m sure. Reading Lisa’s comment above, IMO, the best political statements are artistic or at least, understated.
a visually profound statement of this fucked up world we live in……8-)
