Images that have been redeemed through painting

The eleven images in Images that have been redeemed through painting are intended to provoke the viewer and make them uncomfortable. There are funny Biblical passages about rocks, real estate billboards, a horrible tudor mansion, Queen Victoria and more. The selection of images don't make a lot of sense as subject matter for art in the 21st century but perhaps the artist can redeem them through painting.
