I wanna be adored
"I wanna be adored" is a collection that explores the concept of adoration and religion through the artistic glorification of popular icons such as Elvis, David Bowie or Marilyn Monroe, elevated to the category of gods and virgins, from where they claim their right to be worshipped. They occupy in their own right a sacred place, traditionally reserved exclusively for biblical figures. Faith, forgiveness, sanctification and finally glorification are omnipresent concepts in these pieces, which explore not only the need to worship, but the desire to be worshipped ourselves. As a way of vindicating a more human concept of the divine, the protagonists of the collection reign from a more earthly heaven, more within reach of the viewer, illuminated by neon lights, like a heavenly Las Vegas where virtue and sin go hand in hand.
