The Art of the Virgin Mary with a Gun … Marilyn Artus’ exhibit “Our Lady of the Anti-Personnel Weapon & Her Stepford Friends
Unbelievable … this is what passes at art, the Virgin Mary holding a gun. How out of touch is the artist Marilyn Artus, she stated that she was surprised when some people found her art offensive. Some people ma’am!
Check out the pics and see if you are offended.
She said she is hoping people look at the three parts of her collages — the images of the Virgin Mary, the embroidery and the dated advertisements — as a whole and not just the use of the religious icon. She said people often see the Virgin Mary and the weapons each as symbols of power.
“I didn’t think it would inflame people. They are assuming she (Virgin Mary) is attacking the faith,” she said.
“It’s looking at a woman externally only. I’m hoping other women can identify with them and men can get a glimpse of the complexities of a woman’s life. I want to put them out there. I want people to define what they mean to them.”
Ashley Griffith, art director of the a.k.a. gallery, said the exhibit is in keeping with the gallery’s mission.
Oh yea, cuz arming the Virgin Mary with a gun has nothing to do with attacking religion. Spare us the BS.
Just one final question to the so-called artist and the fool that is showing this crap passing as art … LET’S SEE YOU DO A PIC OF THE PROPHET MOHAMMED WITH A GUN OR HANDGRANADE LIKE YOU DID THE VIRGIN MARY.
I DOUBLE DOG DARE YOU!
Ashley Griffith, the art director of the a.k.a. gallery was asked that very question this morning on Fox & Friends and she said she would, trying not to hold back from laughing. As her nose was growing Steve Doocy chimed in, no you wouldn’t.
