Alienated

 

SS2_Alianated from God

The second in the series is ‘Alienated’ which depicts the absolutely devastating effects of sin in the world. Adam and Eve (represented by two red hearts) are shown cowering in the corner as they attempt to cover up their nakedness hiding from God. The large black space covering most of the painting illustrates how severe Adam and Eve’s act of sin affected their relationship with God (Genesis 3).

Immanuel

SS3_Immanuel

The white heart in the picture represents Jesus who came to earth and lived among the world full of sinners. The white colour illustrates that Jesus was fully God and the heart shape that he forfeited his godly glory and splendor to live with humility among us as a man. “The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the one and only Son, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth.” (1 John: 14, NIV)

Weigh up

SS5_Weigh up

The scales visually show who the human heart in a sinful state (red heart) does not measure up to the righteous and sinless purity of the Jesus the Son of God. This painting leaves the questioning hanging ‘How can anyone measure up to God’s standards? “For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life through Christ Jesus our Lord.”(Romans 6:3)
