I Made the Virgen Have a Baby Concept, 2010

I grew up in the Catholic tradition, participating in all the rights of passage. As an adolescent, I was questioning the world around me and church was no different. What I saw was an organization that was using people’s faith to keep them in a state of need. I felt that my faith was somehow contributing to this cycle.

This sculptural sketch was a kneeler that would release a capsule from behind this virgen that contained a plastic baby., like a gum ball machine.
