In Different Voices

By Maury Gortemiller

Artist: Maury Gortemiller

Project: Do the Priest in Different Voices

Description: Maury Gortemiller’s work Do the Priest in Different Voices shows us familiar scenes from an unfamiliar viewpoint. The images in this series blend the icons of Christian epiphany and mysticism with mundane objects from our everyday experience, changing the backdrops of one thousand year old stories to this century in a distinctly American setting.
