About The Artwork

"Envy" is part of a series of illustrations I made during 2014 and 2015. The series represents my vision on the seven deadly sins. Perceiving sins from a religious doctrine perspective creates angsts and might affect the psyche. In our society and culture, the sin has an inherent religious signification. The academic definition of the term “sin” enforces this belief. "SIN, sins, n. 1. Violation of a law or of an ecclesiastical precepts, deviation from the norm (of religion); lawlessness; p. gener. guilty act, fault, guilt. ◊ The ancestral Sin (or native) = (in the design of the Christian religion) mistake of being violated the prohibition to the divine taste of the tree of knowledge of good and evil, a fact which has drawn scaring the human race from heaven and loss of paradisiac state. Capital Sin = Sin considered fundamental by the Church, and from which would spring all other sins. " (DEX 2009) Every artwork creates a narrative which blends together personal reflections and information I've learned as a result of the documentation on the evolution of the list of sins throughout history. Representing sins through personal monsters that exist within each of us is a release from anxieties, fears and the guilt imposed by religion. These creatures are actually neutral, only the excess can metamorphose them, causing them to explode and thereby harming us or the ones around us. Lust, sloth, envy, pride, wrath, greed and gluttony are vices that are part of the human nature and are present in each of us to a certain extent, though we hardly recognize it. Their cathartic valence unites us, dissolves the differences between us and makes daily life more tolerable. The illustrations are also a pretext to analyze and meditate over the vulnerability of the values imposed through education or culture, which most often no longer pass through the prism of our own thoughtfulness.
