Artist's description:

Theophany is the presence of God in the midst of suffering. I have known God come to be with me in my suffering personally. His presence was more grounding than the earth beneath my feet. Sometimes hope of a better future can be the only thing we have to hold onto in the present.

This was made from crushed charcoal being washed away by white spirit. I liked the softness of tone I could make with this process. The addition of the clean cut erasure, found in the act of pouring further more white spirit onto the surface, washing a clear space in amongst the grey offers a purity and a clarity that seems so attractive to me.

Materials used:

Charcoal, White Spirit
