examining the prison of mankind’s condition

The desire to achieve ultimate satisfaction apart from God is infectious and constant. Human pleasure and accomplishment, as ends, keep us from experiencing inner freedom. This entrapment not only tears down our own fabric, but permeates every aspect of society and culture.

The works in this series embody the effects of this disease. Canvases are torn, giving a deteriorative quality to the work, reflecting the cancer of our souls.
