This work is part of the series "Nativity" by Trygve Skogrand. Skogrand has been working with digital art since the late 1990s, often as collage works where different layers of symbols are combined. In the work "Bed-Sit Annunciation" we see the Virgin Mary as a young girl in a simple bed-sit, receiving her heavenly message with wonder and surprise. In the "Nativity"-series, Skogrand was inspired by old religious paintings, re-interpreting the message by placing the holy characters into photographs of our own commonplace surroundings.
