I’m open to creative freedom but I think that golden aura from religious imagery is a bit too much. I saw the whole Queer Icons images and I’m uncomfortable with them. Some of them are better than others, though.
Why are you uncomfortable with them?
Because the aura is something that is given from a higher dimension. You cannot give it to someone as an artist. It smacks of an artist playing God in a rather cheap way.
Hasn’t it always been an artist’s convention?

That’s a good point, but at the same time it’s really charged these days as an image.
