Description/Abstract

Artist Statement

“All Him and all in” is fueled by faith and the Holy Word of God. The mountains represent the Earth and all of existence reaching up toward God’s hand. The clouds signify the spiritual realm of demons and Holy angels at war. The sky opening in the middle depicts hope and salvation in the Son of God. The source of light is not the rising sun but God’s hand. The arm breaking the picture frame in the foreground is the viewers hand grabbing Jesus as He pulls us out of the water. The dark colors in our hand shows the darkness of sin and are transferred into Jesus, as He takes on the bright sun light of Holiness in the other hand reaching to God. Jesus is the mediator that joins us and God together because He is fully man and God, taking our sin as He gives us His Holiness. The Lion of the Tribe of Judah is Father God reaching out of heaven. The dove, hidden lion cloud, and heart in middle of black clouds symbolize the Holy Spirit being the hidden force and love around the whole redemption plan of Jesus bringing heaven to us now. I used many layers of oil paint on canvas, with the most layers for the mountains and Jesus’s body were painted by the palette knife. I mixed paint often on canvas and used turpentine in paint. Vincent van Gogh’s Impressionism and free mark making has influenced my work. Michelangelo’s faith based creativity has stirred up my passion to bring the viewer through a spiritual experience, rooted from the conceptual ideas of the Bible. Mapping out visibly the mysterious answers about the Creator and the created. The painting has led at least two people to give their lives to Jesus. This work has made me fall in love with the chess game strategy of oil painting, where each stroke, time, and placement plays into the final outcome of painting. I did not plan on painting the sky heart in black clouds or the blue lion cloud, this was all the Holy Spirit putting in his ideas on the canvas.
