mixed media installation, detail, 2011

Inspired by the traditional shrines for both sacred entities (a niche for the Holy Child and a pyramid for Quetzalcoatl-Venus), the twin offering expresses the intense and vibrant features of the two devotions, energizing and connecting them in a chromatic contrast of blue and orange, representing the sky and the earth, the eternal intertwining of past and present, tradition and innovation, and hope and renewal. This installation was exhibited in Impact at the Swing Space Gallery in Columbus, Ohio.
