Inspired by Zubaran's "Agnus Dei," I re-interpreted the image to incorporate the idea of an indigenous Christ figure instead of an ethnocentric European representation. My painting questions the practice of sacrifice as a vehicle for salvation.

I am an MFA student at Otis College graduating in 2019. I am a painter.
