Artist's Statement:

"Red flames and divided tongues of fire—these are the images we are quick to associate with Pentecost. But we can’t forget that, before the Spirit moved through fire and varied languages, She showed up in a howling, violent wind. This piece highlights the disorienting, disruptive force of wind that rips through those who have gathered from every nation, turning what they believed to be just another pilgrimage festival into an event after which everything has changed. Perhaps the work of the Spirit is always just as disorienting as it is unifying, as terrifying as it is beautiful."
—Lisle Gwynn Garrity
