Undertow 2018

Religious icons use the gold leaf as a symbol of light that connects to god. it points to both spiritualism and surrealism. By using it, I attempt to discover the nature of humanity and death. I study queer development history and culture, photograph local LGBTQ+ and where they used to gather secretly. I use these images on gold leaf to present the divinity when people to defend and in a pursuit of human rights and as a reflection of religion.
