These deaths shook her con

been raised Catholic but was
simultaneously fascinated by and
suspicious of the religion.
“When someone close to you

grew disenchanted with her par
ents’ church. She didn’t like the
hierarchy that left women out of
positions of leadership and dis
trusted the church’s actions histor
ically, such as the Inquisition. And
she didn’t like the idea of the Pope
being a sort of conduit to God.
“You’re either connected to
God or you’re not,” she said.
But the spirituality and
iconography of the church fasci
nated her. Her master’s thesis dealt
with Catholic imagery, and her
adviser was a devout Catholic.
She said they had different views
of the church, but they were often
on the same page.
Religious imagery, not just
Catholicism, is a heavy presence
in her work. She calls a lot of what
she does “Mysticism, Myth, and
Magic” and said she draws her
sources from religious art,
Catholic ritual, language, popular
culture and classical mythology.
Her work also deals with fem
inist issues, which ties into her

um, Gallimore has been exploring
women’s issues in her art for years.
“I think from a feminist stand
point, it’s very important that she
uses her own figure, her own
body,” Mikasen said. “It’s not fil
tered through a male figure.”
Mikasen said Gallimore’s
work had evolved over the years,
and she had boldly tried new
media, such as silkscreen and
“She takes seemingly fairly
common images or objects, like
vials, and she’ll arrange them in
such a manner that they’re in stark
contrast,” Mikasen said.
She said Gallimore recently
traveled to Detroit for an intensive
two-week study with silkscreen
artist Mark Kaminksy, who has
done silkscreen posters for several
major rock groups. She took his

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Black stuntworkers
said Monday that discrimination in Hollywood is
keeping them out of work.
“I’m feeling it,” said Wayne King Jr. one of
several stuntworkers at a news conference
King double for Michael Jordan in “Space
Jam” and did stunts in “Amistad,” Steven
Spielberg’s movie about a revolt on a slave ship.
In recent months, the lack of roles for minori
ties on television has been a contentious issue,
with advocacy groups criticizing the TV net
works for largely white casting this season.
Now, black stuntworkers are voicing anger
over “paint downs,” in which white stuntworkers
don dark make-up and wigs to stand in for such
actors as Eddie Murphy, Samuel L. Jackson and
Lou Gossett Jr.
“When you have paint downs, you’re taking
jobs away from African-Americans,” said Marvin
Walters, a retired black stuntman. “I don’t care
what they say. This is discrimination.”
Walters had no hard statistics, but estimated
that of some 65 black stuntworkers in Hollywood,
only 15 work on a regular basis.
Walters is calling for a “fade-out” from Oct. 8
to 10 of all Viacom production.
