Through the turbulent times Christ is center and victorious.
The process I use to create my abstract work is healing. I start by creating an abstract expressionist image. Then i cut it in strips and carefully redistribute the strips into a collage. In this piece I have overpainted the collage interconnecting and bringing even more depth to the work. The cruciform became shieldlike and I found myself wanting to create more depth, infinite, present and ongoing by the radience of white to vermillion horizontal and vertical pallet knife marks.
This work is a prayer in the Spirit.
Christ is my shield.
"But you o Lord, are a shield about me, and the lifter of my head."
How many battles? The continual waring of the rulers, authorities and powers is too much for me but not for God.
The Kairos , the fulcrum, the center of faith is depicted in this icon like shield. The one who knows every battle, every pain, each sorrow and every joy is the center eminating into eternity.
"Fear not, for I have redeemed you; I have called you by name, you are mine. When you pass through the waters I will be with you; and through the rivers, they shall not overwhelm you; when you walk through the fire you shall not be burned, and the flame shall not consume you." Isaiah 43:1-2
