about this work
This work continues Oren Eliav’s long-standing inquiry into the function of vision in painting and its relation to the rules of perspective. Although the work seems preoccupied explicitly with Christian imagery and theology, it also points to tensions of identity in the contemporary Western world and its historical narratives. The work forms part of a series of paintings  based on photographs of ecclesiastical architecture, each playing with the viewer’s spatial and conceptual viewpoint, presenting a different location within a church that Eliav re-created and distorted.
