Archangels 2004-2006

 

The most interesting thing about religions for me are how they define what it is to be human. This series is meant to represent the humanness of religions. The Archangels have had a wide spread appeal through out time being found in Christian, Judaic, and Islamic traditions. This project involved researching the Archangel's stories and traits. I then narrowed them down to a core 11 and chose people from my life who personified these archetypes in personality, interests, talents and demeanor. I was very happy that they all truly identified with the Angels I chose for them to represent often with surprising similarities. There are 11 paintings in this series all of which are 36"x 80" Oil on Board.
