Southern Utah Museum of Art
Al Farrow’s ornate religious structures, ritual objects, and reliquaries incorporate materials such as deconstructed guns, bullets, bone, glass, and steel. Farrow’s work is inspired by a trip to Italy where he encountered a reliquary containing the remains of ancient Saint Lorenzo. He noticed the Saint’s withered finger resting inside the reliquary, bent in the shape of a “trigger finger.” It was from this experience that Farrow began crafting mysterious, mesmerizing sculptures which explore the relationships between religion, violence, peace, brutality, the sacred, and the unholy.
