Collapsing Faith is part of a series created from an art text book on perspective. I was inspired by a perspective drawing of church windows. The piece is an icon to the all different kinds of spiritual belief. The accordion structure made the title Collapsing Faith obvious to me since the presence or absence of faith can radically alter our lives for good or bad.
