Sacred Horizons


S T A T E M E N T
 

In these works, I explore the tension between the Creator and the creation.

The dichotomy of ground and sky becomes the language through which I compare and contrast those characters. The atmosphere varies from murky and hesitant to clear and bright. At times there is an ominous weight or an active motion, and at other times a serene peacefulness. These atmospheres set the tone for the communication between the two characters.

The use of color in each painting is meaningful. Colors are connected with emotion and often represent a specific feeling.

Blue is often associated with sadness or loneliness. Red can be a show of passion or anger. The use of white in the work represents the pure Spirit of God. In a darker painting the use of white may feel distant, while in a brighter piece perhaps the white areas are more clear and bold. In some pieces the use of white is sudden, in others it’s very subtle. I believe we can be in communication with God in a variety of ways, and God, in turn, speaks in a variety of ways, so this varying communication is represented in the work in this way.

By extension, I ask viewers how they see themselves, and how their perception of God is shaped by that self image. My hope is that viewers will spend time with each painting and notice a visceral reaction. Consider how the landscape of your soul has felt at different points along the journey to understanding your identity, and consider how you communicated with God at that time. Consider how has your identity has changed and how that change has affected your communication with—and understanding of—God.
