Pioneer is a series in which I studied narratives, religious artifacts, and characters from my family's history and religious culture. This series depicts narratives featuring members of the Garside and Westwood family, my ancestors who settled in Salt Lake City, after leaving their homelands. These pioneers crossed the Atlantic ocean and trekked the American frontier, following the dictates of their consciences and faith in their new religion. The narratives, settings, and characters are reconfigured re-creations of my family history, family anecdotes, and historical photographs.
