6 FACETS OF FAITH


Commissioned by the Office of Religious and Spiritual Life at Wellesley College
medium: acrylic on canvas


Wellesley’s Office of Religious and Spiritual Life (ORSL) asked me to create a series of six paintings for the office stairway as part of their office redecoration project. The paintings I made represent my interpretation of 6 different aspects of faith practices.





Enlightenment

Faiths offer different perspectives on enlightenment, like folds made in a single sheet of paper.



Service

Faith practices bring people together, to work towards understanding, mutual growthh, acts of service.



Ritual

Faith is anchored in ritual, calling us to regularly return in thought, prayer, gathering, or meditation.
Faith

In darkness, faith is a light, however sparse or distant, that we look towards.



Peace

Over disquieted waters, our faith practices root us on sturdy ground.



Study
Following a faith practice calls us to spend time with text and learn not only about our faiths but about the world in which we live.
