Making of a Moment
This piece was inspired by the verse where the phrase “the fullness of time” is found. Galatians 4:4 says, “But when the fullness of time had come, God sent forth his son...” The idea is that there was some marker that had been reached indicating that the fullness of time had come at that specific point in history.
So then, what determined the Chronos timing of that Kairos moment? And what all goes into the timing of all important moments? What is the unseen, other-realm planning that operates outside of time but determines when to break into it?
This piece, similar to “The Now and the Not Yet” is split by a gold line. This separates the view into two sections: the view unlimited by time, and the view limited by time.
Above the line is the view from outside of time where all of the intent, planning, correlations, connections, and insight occurs. It shows layers upon layers of orchestration and movement towards the designated, appointed moment.
Below the gold line shows our perspective, distorted and limited by our position inside of time. We glimpse meaning and connections of timing, but it is only a shadow of all that goes into the planning of a moment.
“Making of a Moment” offers us a reminder that we see but in a mirror darkly the true reality of all that goes into the moments that fill our time.
This is a mixed media piece which includes gallery wrapped canvas (20x20x1.5"), oil paint, metallic oil paint, cold-pressed watercolor paper, graphite, gel medium, and varnish. This style of collage painting helps express the layers, textures and varying elements that come together to tell the story with more depth and interest than paint and canvas alone.
The painting comes unframed unless you purchase a framing option but is painted on all sides if you choose to display it unframed.
Paintings usually ship within 1-2 weeks unframed, 2-3 if you choose the framing option. Shipping costs are included (approx. $50 value) and additional shipping costs of the frame are wrapped into that price.
About this collection:
The Fullness of Time Collection explores what it means to live within the bounds of time. What is the purpose of time? What are we filling our time with? What is time moving towards? When we better understand these concepts we are able to move through life in agreement with time. We start to understand right moments, proper perspective, and future fulfillment. This collection highlights different aspects of the fullness of time.
