I want the viewer to go inside the painting,become apart of the human experiencereality that exist because it is a universal reality that man cannot escape this reality because man belongs to this reality, its coded into our DNAnature i can find myself in the psychology of the people image in the paintingwe all carry a quality of biblical transfiguration. Reality crashes into art that,brings truth. NB. You may order a print of it on my PODPAGE seen on the LEFT of this website.. Christian Art and Symbols And Meanings1. Dove,Holy Spirit,2. Butterfly,The resurrected human soul,3. Egg,Creation rebirth,the artist symbolic meaningThe symbol egg and eyes are evocative of the energy of lifethe egg symbolize a scale and the door of life,life, is a scale that weights truththe eye is a symbol of life,it watches time as it passes.
4. Grape,The blood of Christ,5. Lily,Purity,6,Apple,Fruit of the Tree of knowledge,symbol of the Fall of Man,and his Redemption. Dont view the scene as merely a moment of psychological drama,its beyond a literal rendering of the biblical narrative I clearly condense the subject physically by the compact force of the figures,and spiritually by presenting many levels of meaning at one time. Thus the gesturesattitudes of Adam and Eve,is one of submissiveness to sin. They are also,expressing,passionate expression of griefand remorseonly if itcould reverse but they are both responsible. It is relevant to us,its real,as life is,no escape. The painting is a diptych but each panel has been designed to exist as an entity and each logically,conceptually,contextually,psychologically and emotionally harmonized cohesively as one.
