Mechanical Engineering major, BYU. Artist statement: "The image, titled "Hagoth's Odyssey," depicts a character named Hagoth from the Book of Mormon, a sacred text of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Hagoth stands proudly before his meticulously crafted ship just before embarking on his final journey. Using a mix of traditional and digital mediums, I sought to convey the grandeur of this courageous shipbuilder's expedition. Inspired by the spirit of exploration and faith, the artwork symbolizes the triumph of determination and the unyielding pursuit of discovery. Through this portrayal, I hope to honor Hagoth's legacy and the adventurous spirit he represents within the pages of history and scripture. In following Hagoth's example, we can strive to be leaders in our own journeys, fearlessly charting new paths and inspiring others to venture into the unknown with us. By shining our light into the darkness, we, too, can discover uncharted territories and leave a lasting impact on the world, just as Hagoth did through his visionary spirit and courageous pursuits."
