In The Beginning

Nick VandenBerg's avatar Nick VandenBerg

This piece is a very modest attempt to represent the complexity, mystery, and wonder of God's creation. Life is such an amazing thing; so beautiful, so joyful, so detailed, so intricate, so vulnerable, so fragile, yet so constant and expansive. I wanted to abstractly capture my vision of life as cells grow and divide, whether the beginning of all life "In the beginning" Genesis 1:1, or the beginning of human life in the womb. The scale is small, only 8"x10", drawing the viewer into an intimate detailed scene which causes time to stop for a moment in order to experience it; taking time to consider something we often take for granted.
