    I think LDS Artist / Andy Warhol close associate:

    Isabelle Dufresne should have been invited to this.

    A shame she died. Her last exhibit was on just a couple of months ago.

    These quotes by LDS artist Ultra Violet (Isabelle Dufresne) are insightful:

    She has been through temples in London and Washington, D.C., and was impressed by their architecture and the ideas taught there, but the art disappointed her.

    "It is ugly," she said. "The images repeat themselves over and over. It is supposed to be about creation, but it is just a copy of a copy of a copy."

    Dufresne wishes the church would find Mormon artists to create something "new and original."

    "The Holy Spirit does not paint like a photograph," Dufresne said.

    Perhaps the panel will take her insightful comments to heart. Rest in peace Ultra Violet.
