About The Artwork

Luke - Prodigal God Mineral Pigments, Gold, Platinum on Kumohada,48 x 60 inches The title of this work, based on a well known tale of the lost son in Luke 15, is taken's from my pastor Timothy Keller's book, Prodigal God. The visual complexity of the work depicts my own inner struggle between legalism of religion (the elder brother) and the "recklessly spendthrift" nature of the Father's love in the story. In the art world and culture in which we celebrate the wayward, but not having the language to bring the lost (myself included at times) back home, these series of works probe deeply into the tension that exist within my heart to love deeply - in spite of the legalism and the waywardness that prevails in the wider culture. This is one of the five frontispieces for The Four Holy Gospels Project (Crossway) and the original will be featured in the inaugural Fujimura Chapel created at Museum of the Bible in Washington DC starting in November of 2017 Due to contract reasons, prints cannot be signed by the artist.
