Miserere: Pete Buttigieg
What I really like about Mayor Pete is that he is a debate opener, a calm listener and a positivity ambassador. His education but I would also add his manners are reflected on his language as well as his tone. So he is opening the debate about religion, values and identities in a sober and productive way. Personally I am not really religious. I wish I could be more than just a occasional church visitor just to celebrate big religious events and costumes of my Greek heritage. But I am somebody who is recognising the incredible power of religion in society and private life. So many times I wish I could be more religious or more spiritual. Have this contact with a less logical and more emotional part of nature that can’t be ignored. Pete is opening this debate and he is also defines the vocabulary for it. He is speaking for the important values that are reflected in scriptures. Hope he can find a wide audience for this debate. I also hope that this portrait of his I created can also start some healthy and productive debate on values, spirituality and politics.
This portrait wants to mimic the visual vocabulary of stained glass window art. It’s a puzzle created with pieced from hundreds of stained glass artworks from many cathedrals around the world. Hope that you like it no matter what religion you follow.
