About This Art Edition

The Cross was shown within the installation Novo Asceticismo (“New Asceticism”) at Stephan Doitschinoff‘s solo exhibition Heri, Hodie, Cras at Gestalten Space. The work reflects on the sacrifice and deprivation necessary for modern man to live purely, without feeling alienated or falling into the vices, mental traps, and social conditioning of contemporary society.


Doitschinoff’s art is based on a deeply symbolic code language and iconoclastic religious and folkloric elements. He offers acid critiques of our modern society that provide glimpses into another political and philosophical dimension. His paintings and other work go beyond superficial religious references to illustrate narratives of denunciation, renunciation, and affirmation. By embracing his eclectic influences, Stephan Doitschinoff creates a unique visual language and style. His themes are inspired by an informed spiritual history and heritage that is rich in symbolism and his work is often accompanied by Latin text.

 

More About This Art Edition

Stephan Doitschinoff is a self-taught artist who was born in 1977 in São Paulo, Brazil, where he is currently based. As the son of an Evangelical minister, Doitschinoff spent his childhood absorbing the visual vocabulary of religious art. As an artist, he has developed his own unique language and style through imagery that creatively combines Afro-Brazilian folklore with Baroque religious iconography, as well as Alchemic and Pagan symbolism.


The artist is widely considered to be one of the leading talents on the Brazilian art scene and his work is shown in museums and galleries in the US, Brazil, and Europe, including at the São Paulo Art Museum (MASP) or the Museum of Contemporary Arts of San Diego (MACSD).
