Television Saves

No Longer Available






24” x 36” x 1"


This ongoing series of felt storyboards are reminiscent of the ones I grew up with during Sunday School. Simply made from hot glue and cut felt, the storyboards pay homage to a straightforward DIY process and the resulting oddball aesthetic. Rather than telling significant Biblical anecdotes, these storyboards tell bizarre accounts of faith or tales of the ‘miraculous’ through everyday objects in strange situations.<br/> In this bizarre but true story, an opioid addict turns on his TV at 3am to find The Gospel of John playing. He sees it as a direct communication from God and kneels to pray. He has been sober since the incident.
