A Lenten Study (Spring 2017)
A Lenten Study is a series of works created during Lent that reflect the cycle of grief (denial, anger, bargaining, depression, acceptance) experienced by the crowds of Jerusalem and Jesus' disciple and betrayer, Judas Iscariot. The experience of loss penetrates to the very being of a soul torn asunder. Judas' loss of self in his act of betrayal and the loss of the hope of the crowds of Jerusalem in an unlikely messiah is a driving force of Lent and Jesus' journey to capital punishment. These works explore the relationship between betrayal and grief and their role within the inner conflict of the loudest (the crowds in Jerusalem) and the quietest (Judas Iscariot) characters in Jesus' journey toward the cross.
Various pieces from this series are available for exhibition and/or purchase.
Cosmic Flood: A Visual Lenten Journey (Spring 2018)
Cosmic Flood is a series a 7-week Lenten art installation that ventures to use visual spirituality as a medium to express the 40-day journey of Christ towards the cross. These series of works, one for each Sunday of Lent, will be exploring both the vast "otherworldliness" and wild accessibility (seen as gold flakes) of divinity within the human experience. As we fast, pray, and live within the story of Jesus during Lent, we encounter the incarnate God whose experience of pain, betrayal, and dread seems eerily similar to our own. Currently on permanent exhibition at Kingston United Methodist Church, Kingston, NJ.
Various works available for exhibition or purchase.
