I have been interested in the concepts of ‘Idols’ for a while now, even before this project had been introduced to me, because of my lingering fascination with religion. Unfortunately, I cannot even conceive a reality in which a ‘God’ could exist, and so find it fascinating that we all worship our own little ‘idols’, whether that be an outer or inner reflection.
I saw an image of a primitive idol within a book on primitive art, and decided to create my own. whether I will worship him, is another story, but I like to think that he will become a close companion as the year progresses.
Or I’ll crush him into bits, either way.
