"Calvary"

Artist'sStatement
"Calvary"is painted with lacquered acrylic on wood panel, in a geometricexpressionist style which rewards quiet contemplation.
The vertical format and the triangular massing of the composition isintended to lift the gaze of the viewer upwards, through the variousstages of human existence, over the 'building blocks' of every daylife and through the beauty of nature (represented in abstract form)towards a higher ideal and the glory of God. "Calvary" is arepresentation of this ideal.

Romans1:20"Since the creation His invisible qualities, His eternal power anddivine nature, have been clearly seen and understood through what Hehas made".
I see the glory of god in His creations, especially all the beautifulflowers.

 

PEOPLE'S CHOICE 2005
Artist: Rhondda Walters
"Seven days"

Artist'sstatement
"Every day of our lives we see and feel THE GLORY OF GOD. We aresurrounded by His Glory. He has created our world, the universe,everything that grows and every living creature. He has created manand woman and has bestowed upon them the gifts of love, emotion,intelligence, understanding and compassion and above all, He hasgiven them a soul. Surely these miracles are glorious!

Mypainting of the creation " Seven Days" is abstract and symbolic. Ihope that it evokes deep thought and creativeinterpretation."

STEPHANIE HOLM (age: 16)
"WITHOUT WORRIES"
Lead progresso

My artworkentitled 'Without Worries' reflects on the theme "In theBeginning"
as in the beginning when God created the earth, there were no worriesnor was there a need to stress.
I have tried to symbolise this notion through the image of thecarefree young
girl as she enjoys the 'beginning' of her life.
