"I wanna be adored" is a collection that explores the concept of adoration and religion through the artistic glorification of popular icons such as Elvis, David Bowie or Marilyn Monroe, elevated to the category of gods and virgins, from where they claim their right to be worshipped. They occupy in their own right a sacred place, traditionally reserved exclusively for biblical figures. Faith, forgiveness, sanctification and finally glorification are omnipresent concepts in these pieces, which explore not only the need to worship, but the desire to be worshipped ourselves. As a way of vindicating a more human concept of the divine, the protagonists of the collection reign from a more earthly heaven, more within reach of the viewer, illuminated by neon lights, like a heavenly Las Vegas where virtue and sin go hand in hand.

David vs the Virus
"An ode to the year everything changed" - Frank Wilder The story of the underdog is a reoccurring theme throughout history, and perhaps the most famous example is that of David vs Goliath. A tale about perseverance, in which David takes on and defeats the giant warrior using only his smarts and a stone. Famously depicted by Michelangelo's David statue. Fast forward to the present day in 2020 and we as humanity are faced with our own Goliath. An uncontrollable pandemic spread around the globe. Now with the entire planet being affected by this we understand the gravity of the situation at hand, whether it be a virus we’re fighting or other forces at play, there is indeed an energy out to shift the balance of the Universe… Regardless of our differences, in this moment must unite as one. With diligence, trust and belief we as a whole can come together to triumph against "the enemy". Stay vigilant my friends. Original score created by the one and only Phoenix Wilder.
