Works on Grocery Bag Paper

These paintings were produced in 2012 for a show entitled Kenosis, Lectio Divina, and the Lessons of a Grocery Bag. They are all produced using mixed media on grocery bag paper. The works are suspended away from the wall allowing shadows to be cast that embellish the pieces. Each painting  has  a balm of frankincense and myrrh rubbed into the paper to allow a fragrance to permeate the space in front of it. The biblical themes of each painting reflect the crucifixion, resurrection, the garden of Gethsemane and others enabling a visual interpretation of a contemplative nature to surface. The body of work, which took two years to produced was destroyed because of the failure of the show.
