Public Health major, BYU. Artist statement: "Amongst the multitude in 3 Nephi 17 were many Nephite children. The title of this piece is “Look to Life”, inspired by a mental image of innocent, believing children surrounding Jesus and by a child’s inclination towards and fascination with the living. This work’s composition is intended to evoke intimacy, curiosity, and togetherness. The butterfly, the piece’s focal point, is representative of transformation and hope, which Christ offers to those with a pure heart and a willingness to turn to Him, as shown literally in this piece. A subtle difference in value between the children's feet implies a variation in skin tone, and the lack of color ultimately leaves the viewer to interpret as they may."
