Artist’s Statement

Singing in Silence is a collection of digital photography inspired by Shakespearean style sonnets previously written in response to a weekend seminar, “POSE: Queer Theology in Ministry” at Boston University School of Theology. The sonnets, titled Sacred Bodies, describe the artist’s discovery of their own queer identity, struggle, and subsequent reconciliation with the capital “C” church. As the words touch on themes of Queerness, the identity of God, sacred community, and healing, the photographs were created to illustrate similar sentiments. The goal of this show is to take the viewer through moments of peace and self-reflection that allowed the artist to realize the Divine within themselves, hoping the viewer will realize the same.
