From the artist:

When we talk about the creation story, we often refer to Genesis. But the bible is full of creation stories, and the opening of John’s gospel is one of them. Not to be confined to literal interpretation, the poetry of John 1 tells us more about the nature of God than about the contents of the cosmos.

Looking at this story of birth, what do we learn about God?

In the beginning was the Word and the Word was with God and the Word was God (John 1:1).

God is living word, holy discourse. God is known to us in logic, debate, truth, and story.

What came into being through the Word was life, and the life was the light for all people (John 1:4).

God is living flesh, divine presence in human form, the embodiment of love for all people. God joins us in every human experience.

The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness doesn’t extinguish the light (John 1:5).

God is light that pierces through the darkness. Nothing can stop it or dampen its might.

In this painting, I meditated on the persistence of light. Light can travel endlessly through a vacuum; light waves won’t diminish no matter how far they have to travel. Therefore, starlight travels through space for billions of light years to reach us on earth. Can you imagine that? Perhaps that’s God’s nature and constant posture—endlessly traveling through time and space just to reach us.
