From the series ‘New Democratic Pictures’, Faith Drop is among the first works in which the artists depict themselves naked. They are shown devoutly on their knees, held aloft on the open palms of giant arms. Falling from the sky are oval-shaped pieces of ecclesiastical architecture, such as rose windows. They bear symbols which reflect many of the world’s religions. The soft pink and warm yellow colours lend the picture an idyllic quality.
