Every human life shares the story of the first human lives: innocence, fall, and (hopefully) redemption. This universal condition is deeply raw and real, but simultaneously magical and mythical. We are characters in the epic saga of God’s restorative work, and this piece strives to reflect the fantastical reality of this sweeping narrative. We are all Adam and Eve – beloved creations made in the image of God – who live suspended in the tension of a fallen world and a promised paradise. By losing sight of the big picture, we forget how truly magical it is to partake in the redemptive story. By mixing the traditions of iconic church art, ancient mythic symbolism, and modern impressionism, I have attempted to capture the universality, timelessness, and magic of God’s big story.
