artist’s religion

An Artist’s Religion was inspired by Medieval codices, stained glass windows & ancient manuscripts. In Medieval times  few people could read & knew Latin, many religious scriptures and paintings would have undecipherable writings, explaining or embellishing on the holy depiction. The true understandings of these images were for the very elite. The Apostles & the Saints would aid in the guidance of the soul to deliverance from evil. Even today these icons and images are revered, but not always understood. As an artist I have a hard time believing in anything that is so far removed from me as a human on earth. In response to this cryptic icon worship I have made my own  “holy windows” depicting an artist’s religion of objects, emblems and Saints.
