The Seven Deadly Sins

'Now is it bihovely thyng to telle whiche been the sevene deedly synnes, this is to seyn, chiefaynes of synnes. Alle they renne in o lees, but in diverse manneres. Now been they cleped chieftaynes, for as muche as they been chief and spryng of alle othere synnes.' (Geoffrey Chaucer, The Canterbury Tales, end of the 14th century)

I am not a moral crusader - far from that - but as artist and art historian this series combines the best of both worlds. No preaching, just  abundant animal pieces, in which one can indulge in richness, not wither in feeling sin full. I combined information from old bestiaries and church writings on sins and used all the modern digital techniques for these works that look as if they’re much older than yesterday.
