The Cathedral Suite
The desire to better myself is never ending. I draw a connection to the constant reconstruction of cathedrals, to my endless cycle of hope to one day become perfect. Gothic cathedrals depict the lasting divine glory of God. However, their perpetual endurance comes with the cost of ever present scaffolding, shrouding their body. I’m drawn to the juxtaposition of the temporal, makeshift frameworks and platforms, bandaging the idealistic facades. Cathedrals, like my body, are always in that uncomfortable in-between.
