Description

Mercy
Mixed Media
51” x 24”
2020

Mercy, the opposite to Wrath, is portrayed as a threatening figure with a kind face with a broken body. True mercy is to show others kindness and love when they have shown you pain and hatred, hence why this figure is bleeding form the heart- to imply that they have been harmed but show no animosity towards their attacker. Mercy is (quite literally) disarmed, surrounded by weapons that have all been broken, in order to show that within mercy there is no intention of revenge.

It is said by many that all people have evil deep inside of them, but I believe that on the opposite side of that coin, all people have a potential for true goodness in them as well. Portrayals of the 7 Deadly Sins have been made throughout the ages, but in order to promote love and celebrate the light that we all have within us, each virtue that I’ve portrayed displays a trait that counters a sin in the form of large-scale digital print with ink and gold-leaf embellishing.
