"These paintings were created as visual meditations on the intimacy of God's love, compared in Scripture to a marital relationship. God describes himself as a bridegroom, with the church his beloved bride. To describe this internal reality I turned to visual traditions that use symbolic systems to stylize natural forms. Byzantine icons, for example, use an inverted perspective to portray space as if seen from the viewpoint of eternity. Cubist fragmentation of space is used to describe multiple perspectives as a metaphor of the transformation and growth initiated by the Spirit. The candor of folk art is another source of inspiration. It speaks with disarming simplicity of the clarity of a child-like vision, required, we're told, if we are to see the kingdom of God."
