This is an artwork from the series "The Cobblestone Gospels" by the Norwegian artist Trygve Skogrand, who has been investigating the meeting between the holy and the commonplace in his digital art for over 20 years. The figures are from a low-church painting, digitally placed into a photograph from the artist's everyday surroundings. In the work "Caritas", we se a woman bringing her sick child to Christ to be blessed, or even healed. The meeting is taking place behind one of the oldest churches in the city of Trondheim, Norway, – a place frequented by the homeless and outcasts of the city.
Trygve Skogrand (b. 1967) lives and works in Asenfjord, Norway. After originally educating as a Civil Engineer, he has been working as an artist using computers as his artistic tool since the late 1990s. Skogrand's works have been exhibited in Oslo, Trondheim, Malmö, London, Edinburgh and Berlin, and been published as several art books.
