This is all you need

This is all you need
Acrylic on canvas
100 x 146 cm


This painting is based on a screenshot from the worldwide known social network Facebook. The portrait of a Sacred Heart and The Beatles seem to be interacting with their gestures and gaze inside of its graphical user interface. There are also several texts inserted in a search bar, an US flag, two action buttons, and a textbox, which create a kind of crossed line dialogue between them.

– ‘There’s nothing you can do that can’t be done…’

– ‘It’s more popular than Jesus now; I don’t know which will go first…

The messianic-type of phrases enter into conflict with doubts about belief. About what? Most probably about the relationship between fame, religion and art, which here are addressed with winks to pop music and painting. After asking in the search bar “All you need is”, the only answer we get is “This is all you need”. Therefore, it is for us to determine what “This” means.
