Maybe it’s my love of paradox or my Aussie irreverence, but I am drawn to religious art with an iconoclastic twist.

Take this one, “Sad Jesus” by fearn. It’s hardly what you would call a devotional piece but it touches me because this very much reflects my life, commuting each days with Hindus, Buddhists and Pagans who hardly say boo to one another. It gets you thinking, it elicits something, it challenges me, and isn’t that the aim of all art?
