"STAINED"

36" X 56" x 2.5" - Mixed Media

Represents the damage the extreme faction of the 'Tea Party' has done to our country when the pages of the Bible are ripped out of context and used to harm others.  Stained is created with over six hundred and six (606) individual pages of the Bible made into tea bags with real tea leaves inside. I started at the bottom with Leviticus, with an entire bible being used in this piece as well as part of another one.

STAINED is comprised of paper, paint, black tea, string and wood.
