Apostle (2017)

Apostle is a reimagining of Altar Set by Leandro Gagliardi. Comprised of four columns, this contemporary take on religious lighting mimics the rhythm established by Gagliardi’s candlesticks and saints. Just as each saint included in Gagliardi’s piece is positioned in each of their respective gestures, Apostle recreates these poses through light. John, Peter, Paul, and David, all Apostles of Jesus Christ, draw in a viewer through an inherent religious obligation. Apostle is an attempt to match Gagliardi’s achieved visceral reaction.
