The red heart represents someone who does not know God and has a sinful state of heart. The bracket containing the white heart with red stripes (representing Jesus who died for the sins of the world) in addition to the sinner who repents of their sins (red heart) and becomes an adopted child into the family of God. The end of the equation shows a red heart with a white heart in the middle representing Jesus who lives in that person’s heart and life.

These two works ‘Lost now found’ and ‘Blind now I see’ come from the lyrics of the timeless hymn ‘Amazing Grace’ written by John Newton. The lyrics reflect the writer’s immense humility and gratitude at being forgiven a lifetime of sins.
“Amazing grace, how sweet the sound
That saved a wretch like me.
I once was lost, but now I’m found.
‘Twas blind, but now I see.”

Hello bloggers! It’s been a while since my last post, but here is the flyer for my latest exhibition that opens tomorrow. Here is the artist statement:
This work explores notions of attitude and equality compared and contrasted with grace. Incorporated within the work are the use of symbolic colours and heart forms. The narrative progresses from the “good” intentions of humanity balanced against biblical notions of grace and equality. The use of mathematical equations seeks to visually depict notions of spirituality and conditions of the heart. The work takes inspiration from “The Pilgrim’s Progress”, and from artists Colin McCahon and Jim Dine
