I am drawn to stories of saints and hermits, and my paintings often deal with religious themes. The scene depicted in Icarus was inspired by medieval illuminated manuscripts and depictions of the crucifixion; however, abstract surreal forms stand in place of humanity and the cross is reduced to a looming black pillar.
The frenzied activity and intense color connotes a passion like the call to action in Ephesians 6:10-20.
