Description/Abstract

Artist Statement

Both of these pieces are an expression of my faith story portraying a sampling of people I have learned from. My main goal was to tie together each portrait with influential quotes from the Bible, Romans 10:14-15 and Matthew 14:27-31, to convey a simple message: what it means to be the hands and feet of God. People reach other people in mysterious ways. Reflect on your life and question what you think you know.

Each portrait was designed from a photograph of the people in my life: my mother and my boyfriend. The illusion of water was created freely from a reference and was established to represent the differences between the two. The portraits were drawn simplistically using pastels on Rives BFK at a large scale to add an element of grandiosity.
