The Immaculate Heart (2010)

Year: 2010
Mediums: Quill & Ink
Dimensions: US Letter (8.5x11 in)

“The Immaculate Heart of Mary,” an image used primarily by Eastern Catholic churches, is thought to symbolize the virginal mother’s love for God, the messiah, as well as humanity.

In this illustration here, however, Mary is seen not as a blessed mother, but rather an empty shroud, not unlike the figure of Death. This symbolises the void, to which all things shall return. Consequently, the heart has been replaced with the ohm and portrays not eternal love, but the end; as all things, including the supposedly transcendental and eternal, shall die.
