"The Church and Capitalism share a long, volatile history that has moved between phases of antagonism, acceptance, and interchange. Toronto-based artist Mitch Robertson playfully ponders Christianity's corporate makeover in a series of multiples, rubbings, paintings, hand-tinted photographs, and a modular church. Long interested in the faith-based constitution of industries surrounding celebrity, tourism, and myth, Robertson finds links between advertising and iconogra-phy, and questions the contemporary production of 'good & evil'."
