Daddy God
Categories: Fine Art, Passion Project, Gallery Show

Daddy God is an exhibition that consists of dyed photographs and a book project to be read while seated upon a church pew. The book includes photographs from my family archive, my prayer journal from college, photographs of Kool-Aid, and verses from Song of Solomon. The photographs on the wall are dyed with Kool-Aid because of its association with the dangers of organized religion (think Jim Jones) and also its association with evangelical communion (evangelicals using juice for communion wine). The rainbow spectrum also plays a role in the work for its dual symbolism in queer communities and the bible. Daddy God creates a conversation around an under-represented group within both evangelical and LGBTQ communities who identify as gay christians.
