One of my personal philosophies about art and especially the art I create is to allow it to invite the viewer into prayer and reflection... an invitation to hit pause. And in that moment, it is amazing how an art piece can call forth what is true, stop the noise of confusion and doubt and give your spirit a small reset. This prayer wing can serve as a visual prayer and reminder of God’s eagerness to grant you what you need when you ask.
The shape of this wing art piece is inspired by an ancient Egyptian form - an artistic style I have been in enamored with since I was a child. I admire the clean lines and often rhythmic details found in Egyptian art. The dot work is something you will find on nearly every piece I make and it is inspired by Celtic Christian illuminations of the Gospels. Illuminators often used red dots to outline words and letters to give the feel of the Word being alive. I use dots to represent an art piece's life-giving potential hoping the viewer will connect to the Divine through the work.
He put His arms around him and took care of him;
He protected him as the apple of His eye.
Just as an eagle stirs up its nest, encouraging its young to fly,
and then hovers over them in case they need help,
And spreads its wings and catches them if they fall,
and carries them up high on its wings;
So the Eternal guided Jacob through the wilderness
without the help of any foreign god. — Deuteronomy 32:10-12
