United By God’s Love – Gemma Lynch-Memory

25 February, 2020

Upon discovering this year’s theme featuring the wisdom and insight of Micah, his words immediately spoke to me and evoked my desire to ‘unpack’ what I believe Micah is teaching us here. I love working with text in my paintings because it gives me an ability to directly connect with the viewer and maybe stir something deeper in them allowing for an almost interactive experience. In addition to using ‘words to interpret words’, I have used found objects from everyday life and Religious symbology spanning across many denominations and Religious and spiritual practices to represent the idea that despite different patterns of worship, ultimately we are united by the same God and his love for us.
