Faith Floaters

Faith Floaters is inspired by childhood eye floater drawings, the adult coloring book craze, the total solar eclipse of 2017, and growing up in West Michigan. This entry’s construction features ten fasteners, three-11” x 17” collages, and a transparent yet reflective surface. Symbolically, the fasteners represent the Ten Commandments, the three-in-one design represents the Trinity, and the surface represents the calling to reflect Christ’s love. From left to right the images symbolize the old self, the new self, and the path of totality. The black and white, multi-color, and remixed abstract drawings depict the unseen patterns of the world that we conform to, deviate from, and choose to live by. In the pseudo-spirit of James Fowler’s book Stages of Faith and Ash Barker’s book Make Poverty Personal, this piece is a reminder to continuously set our minds’ on things that are above, clothe ourselves with the new self, and love one another in truth and action.
