We The Enemy (Sculptures) (2019)

We The Enemy is a sculptural installation comprised of 41 bronze sculptures based on representations of the devil drawn from art history: historical paintings that portray Satan in hell, drawings, illustrations, and sculptures that represent the devil embodied. Each figure defies normative moral standards of beauty, respectability, and behavior. Among this army of demons, there are feminized characters who suggest sexual perversion – as typified by the Catholic imagination.
