Start Your Own Religion

Photograph By Corey Smith

"Watching David Koresh's Branch Davidians get massacred by the U.S. government on live TV as a kid really made me think about why some religions are accepted and others are not. Anyone can start a religion, and I think they're all a scam. I guess that's what these ladies are up to in this painting, and they're really excited about it." (Mixed media on wood panel with gloss resin finish, 2006)
