Where is Christianity today?
Reports of priests hurting children and protecting each other are disgusting. Parishioners are judged, labeled, and pushed out of the church for being “strange,” “different,” or “other.” Believers are dismayed, losing faith, and abandoning their religious practices. These stories distract from good works in the world. The words of Jesus are buried or suppressed.
This is the starting point for my thesis–artworks that explore themes of “truth” through the teachings of Jesus that I call, Not of This World.
