And the Blind Shall See

And the Blind Shall See, altered book art by Virginia Beach artist Maggie Kerrigan

The style and the word Faith evoke images of the devoted Christian. The dots in front of the word are actually Braille dots, to spell the word Blind.

Years ago I found this book at a thrift store, but didn’t realize it was an index of the Bible until I had it at home. I knew that whatever I cut into it would need to be infused with meaning.

This is, as of 2017, my most controversial piece. I created it in response to the lawsuit of Gavin Grim (now being heard by the Supreme Court) over which school restroom this child should use. Gavin was born a girl but identifies as a boy. No one in the school cared until a well-meaning citizen, armed with his Bible, declared that it “just wasn’t right” and petitioned the school board over it.

Hurting someone terribly in order to make a point about your own Christian belief–what is that? Blind faith, in my opinion. I welcome comments and reactions to this piece.
