Can You Hear The Bells
Can You Hear The Bells (2010) – Mixed media on wood panel – 36 X 18 inches – This contemporary mixed media piece specifically addresses the issue of homosexual marriage as it relates to the Christian church. I’ve always disagreed with the church for its harsh condemnation of gays in this regard. I attempted to reveal the full horror of this condemnation and the effects of strong anti-gay rhetoric on the church, its congregation and its ministers. We all know preachers are wrong when they deliver fire and brimstone sermons to sanction the dehumanization of our gay brothers and sisters.
