ABOUT THE ARTWORK

Study for larger mural size. The history of LGBT people in the church is complex and hidden by cloaks of honorable mythologies. However, it is indisputable that in order to be deified, one's sexuality must be stripped as a part of their history. In this series I bring their stories as queer icons back to the front and state emphatically we have to celebrate all parts of the person. Regardless of sex, age, nationality, and or orientation, it is all parts of their being that elevate them to status of hero. There is beauty in complexity of the individual transcending any branding as saints by religious institutions.
