“Dialogue” acrylic and oil pastel on canvas

Artist Statement:

For so long my body has been a war zone; this canvas is a symbol of a ceasefire. It represents the moment that I stood still, and in that space the Spirit spoke to me about the past and how it has influenced my present. In the movement of the paintbrush I felt the sorrow and joy of what my body reminds me of everyday. It was a defiant stand against hopelessness and a reaching for the faith to remember that someday Christ will make all things new. The canvas now hangs over my bed, reminding me to dance in this earthly liminal space.
