Imagine Jesus was not crucified
There was no sacrifice
No redemption
We are damned

..While preparing works for Behemoth I aimed at combining beauty and sadness, delicacy and brutality, so as to mix the contrasting emotions.

These sculptures are also an attempt to face my inner demons, illustrate the internal conflict and the state of permanent struggle, fight leading to a loss.

Baroque stylized forms draw from Christian iconography however, in opposition to religious dogmas. "Uncrucified" is a figure of Jesus who failed and did not redeem the sins of humanity. "Blind pilgrim" is a defective figure in search of faith and hope in vain. "Fallen" brings to mind Icarus, decieved by pride. Just as Icarus got too close to the sun, so he was defeated by the belief that he could come closer to God and know the Absolute.

These works are combined with sculptures from the Oppressed series. A female bust and a girl with a bag on her head, tied with fabric, are victims of a male oppression, an aggressive, destructive force.
