Innocence is a vulnerable condition of the human soul. We fight to protect it against judgement, yet we are the judges that determine when/if innocence can be ruined. Poetry, a dagger, red paint symbolizing the spilling of blood, shards of mirror shredding our souls of trust, and a murky drop spilling from our divided heart through the broken glass to bounce into the blood and show the clarity of water like a baptism; all collaborate on this canvas to communicate that innocence is his/her own judge; a mockery that is understood when we realize that innocence is the state of potential for our condemnation.-This piece has finished edges and is ready to hang.

Artist Statement I tell people that I paint God’s mistake. Yes, this is provocative for believers and non-believers but the concept of God is already a controversial issue. For myself, the controversy was accentuated in 1995 when I was told in a paranormal moment that GOD IS FORGIVEN and I was not thinking about God. However, my work is not about religion or atheism. My work is about the value of error. - True Error is unintended loss which manifests as our mortal existence, and our moral crisis. Our mortality is not the intent of death, but it creates our personal annihilation. This personal destiny leaves each of us vulnerable to fear and condemnation because as conscious individuals we are descendants of previous existence where each of us is innocent of creating our mortal destiny, but vulnerable to condemning our connection with innocent others who “created us to die” without our permission. Our “error” is our ownership of blame for mortality which is not the power over death; it is our power over cruelty. This broken rhythm creates our identity as I/WE where we are participants in a relationship with life and others, yet have no power to create our own existence. What we own is the power to choose whether to care about our existence and how much. For further reading, please visit my website. www.graceanncummings.art
