For the Lord God Giveth Light

I have a new piece, For the Lord God Giveth Light, that I painted for the I Lexi exhibition which opens August 18 at Writ & Vision in Provo.

Large white circle at top, three columns of yellow shapes (triangles, circles, diamonds), and three large red shapes at bottom (triangle, circle, diamond)

The piece is a reference to 2 Nephi 31:3. “For my soul delighteth in plainness; for after this manner doth the Lord God work among the children of men. For the Lord God giveth light unto the understanding; for he speaketh unto men according to their language, unto their understanding.” The large white circle represents God; the small yellow shapes represent God’s light; the red shapes at bottom represent us mortals in our variety.

Prints won’t be available until after the exhibition closes. (Though the framed print in the show will be available for sale.)
