"I make use of religious imagery or objects, because their beauty. Religious images or objects were designed to educate the illiterate masses, either through recognition of the symbolism or simply through awe. Understanding was also built through ritualized ceremony and recitation of memorized text. By building multiple layers both conceptually and physically, the books can be read from many different vantage points, convey a sense of simplicity, and/or become esoteric because of what the reader brings to the page.
