The Hinge

For years I've wanted to create a painting that reflects my Christian faith, but it has been difficult to come up with an idea that I haven't seen a million times in classic art (specific scenes fr
om the Bible) AND muster up enough confidence to produce something reverent and not trite (sorry, modern Christian art). I wanted to approach the canvas as a means of worship, like Makoto 'Kinkade' to be found in his work.

Finally, inspiration happened when I was asked to show several pieces at Mississippi College this fall. The following piece ("THE HINGE") is my single visual interpretation of the Gospels. Look for symbolism related to: Parables, Miracles, Names of Christ, Life of Christ, and the Triune God. 

Over the next few days, I'll post images of the panels individually and discuss the verses and symbolism therein.
