The illustration above is addressing the verse in Matthew talking about the eye being the lamp of the body. The snake hand is a representation of the dark, or sin, and the scene places the character in a state of decision. She is in between the light of the trinity-represented by the crystals-and the approach of sin. I really enjoy leaving the characters at the point of the decision because I think that is how life is. Often times, we cannot see clearly the results of our actions until afterwards. In the moment, it can be very difficult to determine if we are making the right choice.
This one is also dealing with sin and faith. Too often darkness is swirling around us and it can be difficult to comprehend where our strength is, and how to find Christ amidst our confusion.
"Polaris" This piece is an interpretation on the idea of being born again. To truly be born again we must accept Christ and put to death the Old Self and the ways in which we used to live. This is hard, and here the character wrestles with the acknowledgement of comprehending this.
