Divine Revelations is a site-specific photography installation in which Carolina Mayorga uses her own image to recreate Roman Catholic religious scenes inspired by masterpieces. For this project the artist reconstructs iconic depictions of Virgin Mary in a series of photographs and text. This is a continuation of projects examining issues of cultural identity, gender and ethnicity.
Mayorga is a Colombian-born and naturalized American citizen. She has had solo exhibitions in Colombia, Mexico, Kansas and in the Washington, D.C., area and has also participated in exhibitions in Europe, Central and South America. The artist lives and works in Washington, D.C.
