Joshua Hagler‘s paintings:

“Extracting from a patchwork of Western religious myths, the paintings work as a reconstruction of these traditions into a narrative exegesis tailor-made for the Religious America. n growing up in a complex array of Christian communities and later ostracized, I find myself obsessed with hidden agendas, messianic iconography, and the burden of unquestioned belief. Suggestive narratives are repeated in numerous paintings and installations, assuming various guises, but reflective of the same psychological dynamic vibrating like a seizure in the fold between reason and madness.”
