Divine Transformation

Chelly Morris's avatar Chelly Morris

DIVINE TRANSFORMATION...my story. I have recently started a relationship with God and Christ, it was a personal decision, it was the greatest decision of my life. I wanted to do a piece that would have a spiritual meaning expressing gratitude. I've had this sheet of brass I found at a scrap yard 5-6 years ago with my son Hayden, it has a beautiful patina, what a find! This past November I had an overwhelming urge to make a religious art piece. Cutting the brass sheet metal into pieces for a cross became the idea and evolved from there to become The Passion and The Resurrection, the pair of 2'x4' paintings in DIVINE TRANSFORMATION. My husband, Shale Morris asked me to make a prop to help with a Men's Bible Study for our church The Story. A gentleman, Rick Kearby at The Story saw the prop and asked me if I could make a prop for a lesson he was teaching, "Stand Firm". Stand Firm was divinely inspired. What was to be a small prop became a wire sculpture, fine art piece. Dispair, Hope & Faith are depicted in this sculpture. The second wire sculpture "Delivering God's Word" was created to compliment the first sculpture and the theme I was requested to use (for a Men's Bible Study) was "God's Word". The piece is the 4 Levite Priests carrying the Ark of the Covenant through the Jordan River to deliver Gods Word in the Old Testament. The third wire sculpture, "Hossana: The Promise Fulfilled" depicts Palm Sunday as Christ Jesus makes his triumphant entry into Jerusalem. Sculptures are approximately 18"x14" fluctuating slightly in size per piece.
