Fine art: Egos
Egos is a series of fourteen images based on the seven capital sins and the seven heavenly virtues. This one is the second series from Labyrinth inside the mirror.
Although the names of the capital sins and theological virtues were given by the catholic religion, it is not my intention to deepen their judgmental burden.
We are all enfolded in layers and crusts we build day after day in an attempt to protect ourselves from pain, fear, and grief. The ego is made up of these layers – it wants to emerge in different ways.
Egos is born from opposite poles, from the eternal human duality. Sins and virtues are nothing more than aspects we have undergone at a given moment. There are, however, some that are closer to the soul than to the ego.
