Christian Art: Ron DiCianni

The work of DiCianni is very dramatic. Moreover, it's very nationalist, and perhaps even slightly militant. It certainly does seem to take pride in violence somehow. I am always skeptical when it comes to the idea of "glorifying violence" that about every cultural product is being accused of by some committee of housewives devoid of fantasy, but in this case it seems very hard to deny. I feature this mainly for it's nationalism. I love the pieces of the soldier, Bush and the one of George Clinton. Quite like in the art of McNaughton, it's hard to see where religion ends and where nationalism begins. The one of the soldier (?) being shadowed by a Templar knight is eerie in view of recent Norwegian developments.

There is a website,, however it looks very suspicious and it doesn't seem like an official website. If you are stuck with poker and porn popups for the next couple of months because of opening it, I'm not to be held responsible, that's all I'm saying. ;)
