Looking At God

Looking at God is a series of landscape photographs made  around Ireland where signs with bible verses have been nailed to trees or lamp posts. The hand painted warnings are often of God's judgment and how prepared the reader is for their seemingly imminent death.  The words create a narrative where these proclamations become a frame to build a god inside and a launching pad to visualise what such a place might look like. Reminiscent of John Martin’s famous Last Judgment paintings here we are looking at a landscape which is lit like a stage ready for a subject who is for some reason vacant

All gods, and hence all religions, are simply projections of human desires.

Ludwig Feuerbach 1804 –1872

God is not a projection he is a projectile.

John Kabuto 1940 -
