Artist's Statement

“Before the Foundations” is a series of inkjet images on animal-skin parchment, based in photography and digital collage. Beginning with the description of Jesus in Rev. 13:8 as “the lamb slain from the foundation of the world,” the images explore the considered cost of creation, the loss of innocence, free will and God’s sovereignty, the struggle to function in a wild and overgrown world at least partially separated from its source of life, and finally, redemption.
