When checking out Mark Maggiori’s art, it takes you by surprise to hear that he’s French because his work feels so American. His edgy, brutally honest photographs go wonderfully with the paintings in his series, The Blessed Event, which asks the question: what would happen if Jesus was living with us? This is a pretty intense portrait of American ‘white trash’ in their daily grind.
