“We Are Not All Gods”

Since ancient times, heroes have illuminated the human condition, creating their immortality through narratives that have been passed down through generations.

Superheroes have become enshrined in our modern mythology, comic book characters have become surreal and comics have transcended to become the ‘new bible’. Created through popular culture rather than mythological folklore, rising from child-like tales and psychological epithets that have connected with contemporary society, these nascent fables have found a global audience.

To question the origins of religion and its current standing, “We Are Not All Gods” is an artwork seen from a child’s perspective, discussing the dichotomy of what it means to be iconic yet fictional in an increasingly complex world.
