Grace Carol Bomer's concern is the human condition surprised by the grace of God. Her love of the physicality of oil paint and wax and her spontaneous process creates abstract paintings rich with themes of pilgrimage, love, and sacrifice.
Images and text introduce motifs and metaphors. They create a varied vocabulary and space which become integral to her layered mark making. This pairing of text and image also references her belief that all things hold together in Christ, who is the Word of God and Image of God.
Her work allows the viewer to glimpse the mystery and transcendence of an eternally relevant story.
