Taken from the series “Gods of Suburbia” (2014)

This is Dina Goldstein’s third large-scale project 2013-2014. The work is a visual analysis of religious faith within the context of the modern forces of technology, science and secularism. The series plays with narrative and religious iconography in order to communicate how organized belief has become twisted within a global framework driven by consumerism and greed.  The project challenges the viewer — religious or secular — to embark on a journey of self-reflection as they contemplate the relevance of dogma in modernity.

The artist about the work:
Wicca is modern Witchcraft religion that draws upon a diverse set of ancient pagan motifs and ritual practice.
In Wicca, female and male are equally sacred. As a modern belief system, it is given little respect or credence thanks in part to a misunderstanding of this faith which often is portrayed in Hollywood as good and bad witches.
In Wicca, the female goddess is represented by the Moon, a symbol of Mother Earth and fertility.
The male Wiccan god is given horns, representing the horned animals that ancient humans hunted. Some historians say that the Christian church gave Satan horns to demonize the Wiccan faith.
Wicca includes ceremony and ritual that serves the union of the divine with nature rather than embracing a personal god.
This is something that we associate with people who are on the fringe of society, which is why my Wiccan god and goddess are living on the outside of the mainstream, along the periphery of Suburbia.
