A confrontation of sacral themes is a principal element in many of Lanyi`s videos and paintings as in the recent series of transformed „windows“ by American Microsoft. Artist chose the form of representation that is an attribute of current society – visuality of computer programmes. Furthermore he applied them to the specific stories in the New Testament using their metaphorical resemblance. Everything is rendered in the medium of painting consistently copying graphical visual of computer environment.
