Jesus is with us now
as he always has
in the lives of the poor, the
marginalized, the suffering. Whenever I
am tempted to look away and walk past, I
know it is a signal to look at; to be
present; and to acknowledge the holy.
Holding up the unnamed homeless as
martyrs (perhaps saints, and therefore,
icons) to our failure as a society and
as individual Christians is a reminder
to me to look for, and respond to,
Christ in all faces.
I was a graphic designer for many years,
and although I am officially retired
from that, it seems there is always a
logo or stationery system that needs
doing. In terms of art-making, I am now
interested primarily in typographic and
calligraphic pieces, icon writing and
other personal painting projects.
