Updates on 2008 Drawings

I'm currently working on a series entitled "I Am", a visual essay on the Holy Spirit

I've always wondered how to capture the Holy Spirit, being a spirit and all, you can't really see Him. I always feel Him though. I guess this is my visual interpretation

I'm playing devil's advocate here I guess, but don't these images perpetuate the conventional association between "goodness" and "prettiness"? If these images are representative of all that is *good* (holy) in the world, what's an ugly person to do? This selective representation of "goodness" seems so alienating. It's extreme physiognomy... the images are beautiful, but to the point where it seems insincere. There's no contrast... the characters seem emotionally one-dimensional. They lack well-defined facial features, as if they are terminally passive, submissive, helpless, "innocent"...

It seems to me that the human being is not helpless, nor is it innocent. Girls need noses. Also, they have breasts. Omitting the breasts does not make your work any holier. You are constructing an ideal conception of "beauty", breasts or not...and covering the chest area with foliage does little to de-sexualise your depictions of what are arguably "perfect" women.
