The painting of Anthony Riggs are a visual exploration of opposing belief systems. By integrating visual elements from different historical periods and ideological viewpoints he investigates how aesthetics have been used as propaganda to control the narrative of history. Riggs borrows from pop culture, kitsch, propaganda, ancient mythology, religious iconography, and science fiction. Using aesthetic tricks of classical composition and advertising propaganda, he seduces viewers into his narrative world, inviting the viewer to think about the relationship between east and west, masculine and feminine, ancient and modern, and science and religion.
