Perichoresis is a Greek word describing the relationship between the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. In John 15:26, Jesus says, “But I will send you the Comforter – the Holy Spirit, the source of all truth. He will come to you from the Father and will tell you all about me.”
The power of the Holy Spirit is real. When I said “Yes” to Jesus, the Holy Spirit entered me immediately and rewired my mind. I do not behave, act or think the ways I did before. But I’m still me. Better me. The Holy Spirit continues to guide me.
My hope is that God uses “Perichoresis – Dance of Three” to touch someone in a way that moves them closer to God. It’s not necessary that I know if that happens or not.
I created many versions of the three dancers in an attempt to come up with a simple, elegant lyrical image. The image you see is the closest I’ve gotten so far…
The challenge with any work of art is expressing an emotion in two dimensions. The reward comes when a viewer is touched by the visual expression in a unique, personal way.
I’ve learned that just because I’m creating art for God’s Kingdom doesn’t make the execution easy. I still have to plan, practice, erase, re-do.
God is the creator of all. What a privilege that I get to create, too.
(After the Opening Reception for the art exhibit in which Perichoresis is included, a woman told me that her friend said, “Something about that piece speaks to me.” Thank you, Jesus. Another prayer answered. )
