Relic: Perfect Union
Relic: Perfect Union
found object, hair, resin, blood
2013

One and one make two
Blood and blood give life

Reliquaries speak of miraculous belief; the physical interpretations of a person, place or event. In my current work, I am integrating the Christian tradition of relics with my own personal narratives, drawing a fine line between that which defines beauty, obsession and honor. The reliquaries integrate found and precious objects, encapsulating the sustained life of memory in disposable objects.
