“Take off your sandals for the place you are standing is holy ground.” Exodus 3:5
Experiencing my Son’s transition at age 13, admiring his courage and witnessing first hand his craving for authenticity for life, inspired me to create the Burning Bush. The Holy story of the Burning Bush in the Old-Testimony represents respect. I used a religious story to criticize transphobic religious advocates and others that disrespect human rights and one’s basic right of self-identity. The shoes represent all the prejudiced thoughts and actions that must be put aside and taken off.
