Genesis of Desire is made in response to the layered complications of privacy, secrecy, and queer desire. My previous identity as a born-again Christian has lead me to analyze my gay masculine identity and how its existence has shifted within cultural and utopian possibilities, and differing dimensions of domination and submission. By transforming the divine body into a fantastical being using readily available studio materials, I use codified Christian symbolism to investigate the homoerotic nature of Christ’s fragmented body. The resulting dysmorphic forms become a site of transformation of the physical and psychological body.
