Six scrolls for Lent
acrylic on polyester
360" x 65"
James Chapel, Union Theological Seminary
The scrolls are the record of the journey taken with the Lenten Season
and Holy Week in the mind of the painter. In this journey the process
is the choices to be made, The route is known in general but is not specific.
In it are risks and discoveries. The sensibilities build through alertness
to the experience and the possibilities. There are interruptions and snags
as well as surprises. The open expanse offers relief from the tight and
complex places in the scrolls. The work is fueled by ego and the persistence
of Truth. The spirit soars and the body grounds. This is the creative
process. It reflects and responds to life. It is built from traditions,
history and skills. It must step out of itself and make its own statement.
In doing this it becomes everybody's statement. Places of worship seem
right for the size and spirit of the scrolls.
