Defender (November 2010)
Scripture: Matthew 21:12-17 / Mark 11:15-18 /
18” x 24
Through chaotic, intuitive lines and the name Jesus I created the grid for this piece. I wanted to express the emotion I feel when I read about Jesus cleaning out the temple of those who were misusing it. He says “My house is to be a house of prayer!” By saying this He is defending that which His house on earth was created for. Because of this statement the viewer will notice that in the upper right corner of the painting
there is a peace – a lack of lines in which the qualities that express the calmness of Jesus are written.
