The exhibit has received negative feedbacks from catholic groups and other critics condemning Cruz' works as immoral,denuding the value of the crucifix and the holy images.
In my opinion, it was not art the way it should be. I don't believe catholic images even the said power of the crucifix but I do value the what is called 'RESPECT'. Art is an expression of creativity where messages hide behind its unique presentation. As I see it, it was an art but a DIRT. Dirt that degrades the faith of millions of catholics who have been preserving this christian belief for more than a hundred years.
Medeo Cruz is crazy. This is Philippines. A land where millions of roman catholics live with these images. A country of conservatism. The land of true artists.And, I am happy that the President Aquino supported to close the said exhibit.
Bottomline, my point surrounds on the word "RESPECT". If you hate Jesus, you are entitled to do so in a moral way. You don't need to promote it and proud about it that you have expressed your feelings by abusing the word "ART".
May I know your side about it? Please do leave a message.
