Kelvin Burzon

This body of work investigates an existential inquiry of living as a Catholic Homosexual. It is informed by the imagery, theatrics and opulent rituals experienced while growing up engulfed in a Filipino Roman Catholic culture. Iconic religious imagery is recontextualized by the insertion of LGBTQ members and suporters posing as Catholic deities. The work is an emotional reaction to Indiana’s RFRA and inspired by members of the community that are subject to discrimination.
