Pastor Jason R. Townsell is a found object transformed into a piece that points the presence of a woman in pastoral leadership. The cross is painted in the style of traditional iconography and the top is embellished with prints of lips. These prints reference holy kisses (Romans 16:16) as well as vagina imagery. Also, the title calls into question appropriate delegation of leadership roles in religion.
This piece will be used as a prop in a future performance piece.
