I've been cleaning out my studio recently, and shifting things around, especially on the walls.
I've had a 1999 triptych based on the creation story in Genesis that's been on the back wall of the studio for many years, and I think it's time to take it down and try to find a new home for it. Of note about this piece: there are two different stories in Genesis about the creation of humans -- one in which Adam and Eve are created at the same time, and one in which Adam is created first and Eve then created from one of Adam's ribs. I used the first version, and also scrupulously used non-gendered language about God.
Here are some detail shots of the piece
These are large pieces, about 4 1/2 feet high. The medium is oil on MDF board, and the text is incised into oil and wax sections that separate the pictorial elements.
I would be very happy for this piece to go to a progressive religious congregation, or another organization that has an interest in the cultural history this text represents.
