Rising Horizon I



Artist Statement

Within my painting practice I utilize the world of optics and how we perceive spaces to build metaphors. Often these metaphors grapple with the broken world we live in, while pointing to the hope of redemption that is found in the truth of eternity, hope in the Savior, Jesus Christ.

How it fits into contest

This painting is a self portrait of me walking out of one world and into another. This is a step of faith, whereby I must trust in the One who holds all things, and not trust my sinking heart's intuition. I am blinded, but by faith I am able to walk from a world of drowning destruction into a world where my feet may be planted on solid ground. Ephesians 6 tells us we have the power to walk through the trials of this life if we will leave our own understandings behind and wear the garments given to us in the gifts of faith.


I alone have worked on this painting.
