FINE ART > Word / Image Series

Although logos is common to all, most people live as if they had a wisdom of their own.
T.S. Eliot ( p.77. Fr.2 Four Quartets)

In our postmodern culture the medium of collage is used as a statement that art no longer has authentic meaning apart from some collected diversity. Truth and individual creativity are blurred and ultimate truth cannot be known. Images are manipulated for power or someone's relative truth.
I use collage and layered images and texts to bring unity out of diversity and to point to the truth and the mystery of Christ who is “the Word made flesh.” He is the creator of things seen and unseen. He is Spirit and flesh and Word and Image. He speaks daily in creation, the "fullness of his glory." This Master of layered meanings, allegory, metaphor, and the “revealer of secrets,” brings beauty and grace to a broken world.
