“Genesis” is one of several paintings, drawings and sculptures where I am exploring my childhood experiences within a religious community through art and creativity.

Working on a series of images not only allows the artist to focus on his materials and to explore other areas of the processes of image making, but also reflect on the ideas and concepts behind the images themselves. We often see great artists exploring the same images throughout their lives, never seemingly satisfied and looking for a better solution or idea.
This mixed media artwork is done on bible pages mounted on a wood panel. The panel is mounted on a wood support with the edges painted black. It is signed and comes accompanied by a Certificate of Authenticity.
