I AM: In Conversation with “Redemption Triptych”
I AM: In Conversation with Redemption Triptych is a large scale photographic collage triptych that explores my self identity in light of my relationship with the Christian faith and how it has affected my family and my upbringing. It is a record of my discovery-through-making process that has allowed me to deconstruct, examine, and then reconstruct my self identity how I want it to be instead of how I perceive “Christianity” wants it to be. “I AM” is modelled after the “Redemption Triptych” (ca. 1450), a Dutch Renaissance era triptych whose artist is unknown; it tells the story of humanity’s redemption through Jesus Christ in three scenes: the Expulsion from the Garden of Eden, The Crucifixion of Christ, and the Final Judgment. “Redemption Triptych” provides the framework for me to wrestle with faith, religiosity, and my own story of being redeemed.
