2nd Place in the 2017 Book of Mormon Central Art Contest
Jorge Cocco is both a participant and an educator in the fine arts, having been an art professor at the Universidad de las Américas Puebla in Mexico. The title of this piece comes from Revelation 14:6–7, and depicts the Angel Moroni sounding a horn and bearing the gold plates. Moroni is a pivotal person in the creation, safekeeping, delivery, and translation of the Book of Mormon, and thus became a key element in the development of the Restored Gospel. Jorge Cocco has coined the term sacrocubism to describe many of his paintings that merge the familiarity and sacred nature of religious topics, with the aesthetic of the post-cubist school. While the artist makes the subject explicit, his aesthetic style subconsciously conveys that there are more details yet to be unveiled.
