90 000

Det er sagt at 90 000 kristne led martyrdøden i 2016. Det blir en drept hvert sjette minutt... Tallet er voldsomt og kritiske røster sår tvil om det virkelig er så høyt. Uansett om en deler på to eller mer, blir det for mange. Dette maleriet er spontant malt i ettertanke. Seks svarte stearinlys og tallet 90 000.

It is said that 90 000 Christians have been killed in 2016, which equates one killed every six minutes... The number is extreme and critical voices doubt whether it really is so high. Regardless if we devide into two or more, it will be too many. This painting is spontaneously painted in reflection. Six black candles and the number 90 000.
