Psalms 8 (July 2007)
24" x 27 1/4" - canvas banner
Rich, bold colors and an oil pastel image of cosmic circles emphasize the idea of majesty; the quality that stood out to me in Psalm 8. This is juxtaposed with the idea of intimacy and security which are represented in the lower right corner of the work by the figurative pair drawn in oil pastel. By allowing some of the canvas to show through the work, I hope that viewers will rest their gaze on these places and take in the images they see. This banner is unique to the series as it is only one of two in which the writing is done with embossing ink. The remainder of the series has words written in fabric paint.
