My Eyes Have Seen The Glory of the Coming of the Lord – THELMA CLUNING

23 February, 2020

Micah prophesied that a Saviour was to be born in Bethlehem. The tumultuous event of the birth, death and resurrection of Jesus informs my work. My diptych combines a tondo reflective of Medieval stained glass, with a contemporary textile panel incorporating key design elements from the painting. It is an organic abstract born out of a more complex, painted narrative.

Micah 6:8 lays down the principles for a life lived within the protection and oneness of God. To show kindness, love, humility and justice is fundamental in acknowledging God’s will. The identifying symbols of Christianity remind us of the omnipresence of God and remain references for maintaining one’s faith in His Word.
