Cult of the Virgin
Size: 48″H x 32″W

The Cult of the Virgin has a philosophical connection to the medieval virgin’s religious purity and our contemporary desire to perfect our body and mind with new technologies. In this work, the women put on Romeo’s boots and woo God. The renunciation of ordinary pleasures gives nuns the aura of perfection, but their abstention blackens and smothers the rose. Today we woo technology and hope to choose how it will be used on ourselves.
