The Awakening Of Adam
Painting - Oil On Canvas, Gold Leaf
This is the artist interpretation of the biblical scripture "Let there be light." Considering the creation of Adam as a dynamic and daring event. For all of what is spectacular, beautiful and satisfying in God's creations; why would He enable Adam to glimpse into the edge of the universe? Why allow him to gaze into the stars for it's secrets? Man would push the limits of life he is given. His expression would run the gamut from extreme denial and humility to the declaration of himself as a god. He would have the capacity to be startlingly tender and frighteningly cruel, with both extremes rendering one speechless. God had to know the ensuing struggles of man. Man's fall, the tug of war with his passions, his search for meaningful purpose, and both his self loathing and self love. If his existence; his impact on all that is around him; because he is given dominion over the Earth is so spectacular. How could his coming into existence be some moderate happening? It could not have been.
