Interpreting The Complications Of Faith Deconstruction

I drew this image full of detail to try to express the beautiful chaos of the deconstruction of our beliefs.

You can see death looming there. A TV where a man is watching movies as a way of numbing himself against the pain of reality... another way of escape. You can see the bible being blown apart. The temptation in the Garden. A whale that dives deep. A ladder to heaven that is broken, as well as the cross that has snapped in two. A lonely loaf of communion bread with no one sharing it. A pierced hand. A fallen angel. Trap doors and mazes. Nightmares and fantasies.

It came to a point where I just had to stop and say, "It is finished!"

So, it's finished.

I don't expect anyone to like it or want it. It was just something I had to do. Like most of my art. Inspiration drives me.

Deconstruction is what it's about.
