The Seven Deadly Sins In Contemporary Life

In the Seven Deadly Sins project I investigate contemporary life through the lenses of Gluttony, Envy, Sloth, Anger, Greed, Lust and Pride. Are these “sins” as old-fashioned as they sound today? Or do they provide the energy that fuels modern life in our media-oiled, consumer-driven society? In my overview I use contemporary compositions and contexts in combination with saturated colors and flattened figures that harken back to medieval times when these "sins” were frequent artistic subjects.
