My work pairs concept with aesthetic the way a dance pairs two dancers. The couple become one entity while they are dancing together and yet the two individual performances render distinct impressions.
I have created radical new unauthorized interpretations of the Mormon plates by quoting portions of The Book of Mormon. I am not a Mormon myself and therefore take an outsider’s view of the text. My goal is to create a new sincere cultural schism that intentionally builds on existing religion. I want to combine art and religion into a new subject. The work does not revere Mormonism, but it does not deride it either. The tone is curious, sincere and questioning.
