An Unfailing Result

Oct 15, 2016 - Americo Gariety

An Unfailing Result is a project that was born from loss, a transition that led me from complete and undying belief to utter faithlessness. During this transition, I desperately attempted to reconcile my beliefs with the new information I was acquiring, new information which completely disproved the base of my beliefs. This change, although extremely confusing and painful, opened up entire worlds of thought that had been closed to me in the impenetrable bubble of my faith. In my repurposing of commercially produced religious photographs and imagery that surrounded me as a child, An Unfailing Result is an exploration into the (old) new worlds that have now become available to me because of this beautifully painful process.
