Maria Magdalena

About the series 'Maria Magdalena':


In 'Maria Magdalena' I expressed the contradictions of the phenomenon of Mary Magdalene. In ancient art vilified as a whore and also glorified as a sex object. Mary Magdalene was thus seen as a sacred whore. Because of her remorse over the past, she was a good example to sinners. I tried to visualize this dualism of corruption and purity, beauty and ugliness and contrasts between her dilapidation and holyness.
