Shroud of Orlando (Brenda Lee Marquez McCool)

Inspired by the Shroud of Turin (a linen cloth believed by some to be the burial cloth of Jesus), I developed a modern-day shroud for Brenda Lee Marquez McCool, who was fatally shot shielding her son in the shooting at a gay nightclub in Orlando, Florida, on June 12, 2016.


Artists Statement

My work is broadly informed by a modern interpretation of the Japanese concept of boroboro (meaning worn out or crumbling) and a desire to champion the humble and the frayed.
