This artwork is about a story of Lazarus. It’s pretty much cluttered with words and text.What is Colin MaChon trying to say? Is he trying to question our faith or the religions faith? I think this picture could represent power, life and religion. The composition of this image is unbalanced, grouped and cluttered by text. Some writing is faded. Images and symbols could be a representative of strength? Different types font’s styles and size. Cultural context – Christianity/religion. He uses Bold , Large font . Some are faded some sentences in capitals. Bold font is used to draw the audiences attention. This piece has a religions connotation it’s directed from the bible on the story of Lazarus. Colin MaChon uses a simple colour pallet of yellow, black and white. Which is quite limited. The yellow makes this artwork old , giving it an ancient look. He use’s capitals as symbols, he emphasis the word I AM , I AM LIFE. He also uses repetition on a lot of words. There’s no depth. He emphasis the bold words, which I think are just the main points like I AM, I AM LIFE , resurrection . I think what Colin MaChon was trying to say in this painting entitled A Question Of Faith was to question our faith or question how easily we have faith in something we don’t really know anything about . Oris he trying to advertise and promote Jesus and Christianity? Is he trying to daw our attentionto how important jesus really is and is there life after death?
