dc.description.abstractThis art installation commemorates the experience of Mormon pioneer women who helped to build, lived in, and were eventually expelled from the city of Nauvoo, Illinois in the mid nineteenth century. It consists of oil paintings on paper, acrylic transfer and mixed media collages, and quilts. The paintings record the images and symbols of two imagined pioneer women. The collages explore the fragile nature of their bodies juxtaposed against the strength of their courage as they fled Nauvoo. The quilts represent the piecing together of the strength that remained in the women after their trials.en
