CASEY POEHLEIN: COLLAGES
Man often relates to religion through referencing an icon. This is a material connection which sprouts from the need to connect with something tangible, something that is quite like our physical selves. In this way it is a man made creation. Here, BU art student Casey Poehlein explores this idea through a collage of photographs taken by both herself and by others. She argues here that in placing primacy on religion, he often loses site of natural beauty.
