This piece began with color and texture — a study in chaos. I then contemplate and select an image representative of sacred presence and care to balance the randomness of each color study.
The clean lines and stylized forms found in Byzantine and Orthodox Christian art inform my work. I combine these with a technique found in Celtic Christian illumination: to outline/fill the space between forms with tiny red dots — a visual indicator of the life-giving Word. I use a dot pattern to likewise add a sense of life and divine energy to my work.
