"From the Editor: Soli Deo Gloria" Ray Waddle, Reflections, Yale Divinitiy School magazine '08
Artist Carol Bomer is cerainly familiar with this history. She admires the giants of high modernism. She is intimate with their methods. But she's not terribly impressed by their underachieving scorecard on questions of faith. Bomer creates her own very contemporary canvases by claiming an inspiration unusual in the art world even now - the power of God, the God of the Bible. ...She is keen to convey the dualities of existence but also question their mutual antagonism - the split between imagination and intellect, faith and science, language and silence, purity and impurity. These polarities have defined western intellectual debates for four hundred years,fragmenting the ego, fragmenting the world. But Bomer witnesses to the overwhelming divine power that oversees the human fray and beckons humanity back to peace and wholeness. She sees healing potential in Scripture itself. Reading and meditating on the word of God is a decisive source of her own inspiration. ...
Against a church culture that often nurtures its own suspicions of the imagination and settles for triteness in Christian art, Bomer insists believers should look to art as a window on the great cosmic dramas." ...perhaps you can locate this editorial at the Relections website: www.yale.edu/reflections/editor.shtml
