This series of paintings were birthed out of a study of the Creation story. God moves over the formless chaos to create the earth – Ex nihilo (out of nothing). It was the first act of creating. Land, Sea, Sky, Plants and Animals are all created to work in order with each other. With humans being the final act in the creation narrative. I feel all this earth, ocean and sky were a gift for us to cultivate. Like our Creator, we are meant to form order to chaos. Since that early story and birth of humanity we (humans) have worked against creation – the Folly of destruction.
Faith, Love, Peace – these are the true acts of creation. These are where we are fully alive.
