Passage, 2017

Intaglio and silkscreen on Japanese paper, beeswax, light, dirt, rocks

We live through unique experiences and carry various burdens on our journeys. Although we travel through a path fraught with obstacles, the longing for a source of hope and guidance keeps us moving forward. As we look around and see many others passing through, we notice that they are carrying loads as well. The rock signifies the weight that we bear, and marks our passage once we choose to set it down.

 

Please take a rock to carry, and place it where you choose.

We Persevere, 2016

Intaglio

“Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see.”


We travel through a fundamentally dark world. This work explores concepts of burden and brokenness as well as the relationship between hope and despair in the world we live in. The series of prints explore how we move through experiences that are built with light and darkness. The presence of light is representative of faith and perseverance in the journey towards finding hope and guidance in dark places.

The moth’s attraction to light is caused by transverse orientation, a behaviour that causes the insect to fly at a fixed angle according to a distant source of light for orientation. The Bible often refers to light as a source of direction as well as God’s presence, power and goodness. This piece is based on the moth as it searches for direction and light, as well as its frail and destructive nature.
