How To Use The Bible To Get What You Want. 2012-2013

 

The Book of Genesis is reinterpreted as characters suspended in a pang of discourse: 

The rise and fall of Adam’s devotion,Eve born into discontentment, and the estranged personalities of Cain and Abel. These are Illustrations of the uncomfortable self awareness of the patriarchal influence on the individual. I want to explore a wide range of  aesthetics to discuss how the bible often defines the social archetype so many strive to live up to.

Cain The Daunted
Cain The Daunted

Innocent in his disposition, makes a laborious gift for his Lord. When denied, He embraces the sin bestowed to him.

An Observation on Abel
An Observation on Abel

Abel is well aware of his parents and The Lord favoring him over his brother. like his mother, Abel too is innocent in his discontentment. So I question why was he not punished for taking a life of another? Perhaps he hid his brooding nature well.
