Jesus Saves-CROSSWALK (2012)
With ‚Jesus Saves-CROSSWALK,‘ Tomas Marussiac has again created a series of interesting artworks. For several years, the artist has been dedicated to topics that are influenced by the visual culture of Hollywood and Hollywood symbols. In 2011, Marussiac presented an interesting feature about Spiderman and his secretive life.
The main theme here is a series of images that takes place at pedestrian crossings. Despite the passage of pedestrians, each comes to be known as characters such as: Hulk, Captain America, Batman or Spiderman. Going through the pedestrian crossing is not easy, and neither is moving smoothly through life. Anything can happen: it may die and nearly destruct a famous movie hero. The point is the question “Why is a series of artwork called ‚Jesus Saves-CROSSWALK?‘ The answer is simple. As at present, often people do not see the difference between faith in God and superhero.
