Nigel Howlett - Madonna
This artwork was created for Kult Magazine's Issue #21 Dreams.
I've dreamt of a scenario where the Virgin Mary is an allegory for capitalism and our global economic climate. Her monstrous baby symbolises a humanity seduced by technology while it embraces its consumerist desires. In the backdrop, a blind cowboy and a satellite float overhead, insinuating we are being controlled by higher powers.
Issue #21 Dreams, is a journey into and through surreal and real dream worlds interpreted by illustrators, designers, photographers, sound and motion artists from around the world. The experience of this issue begins with an A-Z Dream Dictionary, which analyses 26 recurring symbols in dreams.
