In His Own Likeness primarily reaffirms existence, which in its diversity and complexity, is equally divine. Although, it does present us, in a somewhat provocative manner, an assortment of images of eroticized men alluding, rather than to God, to His gender—the masculinity attributed to Him—and as a result, to the power associated with the male gender. Thus, the exhibition addresses the way in which masculinity unfolds, expresses itself, and even loses all meaning: sex.

A Su imagen y semejanza es en primer lugar una reafirmación de la existencia, que en toda su diversidad y complejidad es divina. Aunque tendenciosamente nos lleva hacia un espectro de imágenes de hombres erotizados que, más que a Dios, aluden a Su género—a la masculinidad desde la cual ha sido entendido—y  por consecuencia, al poder asociado con el género masculino. Esta exposición transita por la manera más cotidiana en que la masculinidad se desarrolla, se expresa y hasta pierde su sentido: el sexo.
