Highlighted Artist from AMPLIFY Holy Week 2012
by Alicia Ashdown
Mixed Media: Shadow box, acrylic paint, illustration board, decorative paper, and pen
Artist Statement: Our lives are filled with utter despair and suffering in the absence of Christ. We all need Him! Once we know Him as our Savior everything else pales in comparison; even the most unbearable suffering. With Christ as the Lord of our lives, any earthly pain we may have He can completely overcome and replace with joy. We have been called to live our lives with joy and confidence in Him. Even though, at times, suffering and despair can be an overwhelming part of our life; in this piece it is small and insignificant. The joy that is Christ is surrounding and taking over the pain in this piece. The colors not only represent joy, they also represent the “heavens and the earth, the sea and all that is in them”. The dividing lines for the doodles are all words that are in the song, “What Joy”. The sun background is representative of The Son and includes the text of Psalm 146.
