Honorable Mention: 2023 BYU Book of Mormon Art Contest: Leia Aki

“Opposition in All Things” by Leia Aki received an honorable mention in our BYU Book of Mormon Art Contest.

Aki, an art major, was inspired by Lehi’s words in 2 Nephi 2:11. She writes, “This ceramic installation features contrast and opposition through form, color, and texture. Its formalistic presentation conveys an opposing effect that reflects Lehi’s words surrounding the Fall. The shadows of the hollow structure become natural opposing shades of darkness against its white glaze, while the dark geometric shapes on either side loom closely. As Lehi says, righteousness can only be brought pass if there is opposition in all things.”
