Marc Laurenson Self Portrait

Artist Statement

During the Covid 19 lockdown I made a self portrait inspired by the “sacred heart of Jesus” made from whatever I could find in my house as well as recycled food packaging.

I made this for the future to look back to see what our time (2020) was like.

How it fits into contest

My armor is the cleaning products and protection equipment to keep me safe from the virus seen between the hands in the portrait.
This protection will help me stand against the devils schemes.
