Artist Statement Submitted 2015Would Jesus Steal Worms
Since I was very young I have been fascinated with the iconography and imagery of Christianity. I have attended revivals, sang in the Episcopal choir and received many Bibles. Not that this is unusual in the heart of the Bible Belt... except that I was raised Jewish in a small southern town. I continue to return to the area I call home, the Black Belt region of Alabama, to document the changing landscape of the rural South. In this series I have concentrated on the somewhat unique and curious images that have been a fascination.
