This body of work is quite diverse––and was generated by a desire to see if the supernatural and prophetic element in the Bible still has visual power in our lives. I found myself drawn to Old Testament figures particularly (Elijah, Ezekiel, Isaiah, etc) and their powerful symbolic communication: Ezekiel spending a year living on almost no food or drink in order to symbolize the fact that his people had cut themselves off from the source of their wellbeing––God; or Isaiah prophesying that the Messiah would come in an exceedingly strange way––as a suffering servant rather than as a triumphant king. These stories and the many instances of angelic or demonic appearances in the Bible gave me much to reflect upon and generated a great deal of creative energy. These pieces eventually gave me the impetus to do the Lanesville Murals (see above).
