The Saviour 2017
Exhibited in "Why Not All of Them" 2018

The now resigned Norwegian Minister of Justice, and previous Minister of Immigration, Sylvi Listhaug is well known for her lovely smile and mild appearance. She often talks about Christian values. In 2018 she reached a limit of fear mongering concerning immigration, and had to resign from her position as a result. Behind Listhaug in the painting is a slightly altered copy of "Head of Christ" 1941 by the American artist Warner Sallman. The 1941 edition of the painting is one of the most famous and commercialised images of Jesus in the southern part of the USA.
