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 often text introduce motifs and metaphors that suggest a narrative that allows the viewer a glimpse into the mystery and transcendence of an eternally relevant story.
Her layered mark making and 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.
