The Mission – Philomena Drake
My entry is an Artist Book in the form of a sculpture,constructed of Khadi Paper and acrylic ,sewn with waxed linen thread and enclosed in an acrylic slip case.The four images are hand coloured collograph prints.
Each poem is pertinent to the image on the other side and represent an aspect of Micah 6:8.
The first image is receiving as a gift from God”our mission” for our life.
The second is practising compassion and acting justly towards all those dispossessed of their homelands and families.
The third is bestowing kindness and mercy on those different from us.
The fourth is a man walking humbly with his God,hand in hand,trusting as he navigates his way over the rocky terrain of life.
