'Gene Amp 2700' 2013 - Acrylic on Canvas- 1300 x 1500mm
'Ecce Homo / Potatoe Jesus'

The title refers to the failed restoration of a century-old Spanish devotional fresco, executed by elderly amateur art restorer Cecilia Jiménez. The result of the botched restoration spawned a photoshop meme, in which the ruined painting was edited into other famous works of art, movie scenes or other memetic images. Jiménez wished to restore the damaged fresco created by Spanish painter Elías García Martínez named Ecce Homo, which was donated to the Santuario de Misericordia Church in the Spanish town of Borja. According to the church, Jiménez restored the painting without permission. However, she has claimed the priest allowed her to do so. After assessing the damage caused by the restoration, the church announced they would be hiring a professional to attempt to undo the botched job.
